Western envoys condemn threats against Libya lawmakers

Libyan deputy prime minister of the UN-backed government, Ahmed Maiteeq (L), French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault (C) and his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier at the naval base in Tripoli on April 16, 2016Western ambassadors on Friday condemned “unacceptable threats” that they said were blocking a vote of confidence by lawmakers in a UN-backed Libyan unity government. Most of the members of the House of Representatives elected in Libya’s last polls in June 2014 have been based in the far eastern town of Tobruk since an Islamist-led militia alliance overran the capital shortly afterwards. The militia alliance restored the previous, Islamist-dominated parliament elected in July 2012 and established a rival administration to that in Tobruk.
