In conjunction with the start of negotiations for the second round of the Moroccan Bo Zniqa Dialogue between the delegations of the Supreme Council of State and the Tobruk Parliament, after they reached an agreement on the criteria for assuming sovereign positions, according to Article 15 of the Skhirat Agreement.
The media of Haftar and a number of media activists who support him are trying to disrupt the outcomes of this dialogue, contesting its results, and put pressure on the Tobruk Parliament, to withdraw from these rounds, especially after the failure of the Haftar-Maiteeq agreement to resume oil production under certain conditions, and to form a joint committee headed by Maiteeq to handle the distribution of oil revenues under the auspices of the United Nations and the outcomes of the Berlin conference, which met with local and international rejection, headed by the United States, which announced Haftar’s commitment to reopen oil production on September 12th.
Division of positions
On September 28 , Media supporter of Al Karama Operation Mahmoud Al-Misrati attacked the dialogue held in Bo Zniqa, Morocco, accusing the participants in the sessions of this dialogue of working to divide the positions between them.
Al-Misrati added, on the Al-Hadath channel owned by Haftar’s son, that the Speaker of the Tobruk House of Representatives, Aqeela Saleh, is ready to accept the agreement with Turkey in order to obtain the position of the new President of the Presidential Council, and that he does not object to the President of the Supreme Council of State, Khaled Al Mishri, as his advisor.
Promote the agreement of Maiteeq and Haftar
In the same context, the channel tried to promote the agreement of the deputy in the Presidential Council, Ahmed Maiteeq and Haftar, regarding the reopening of the oil fields, at a time when it described the Government of National Accord once as “unconstitutional”, and other times as “terrorist.”
On September 6, the Moroccan city of Bo Zniqa hosted consultations between the delegations of the State Supreme Council and the House of Representatives, based in Tobruk, to agree on mechanisms for selecting sovereign positions, in accordance with Article 15 of the Political Agreement.
While a number of Libyan personalities agreed, after their meeting in the Swiss city of Montreux, under the auspices of the United Nations, to enter a “preliminary” stage that begins with the reform of the Presidency Council into a president, two deputies and a separate government that ends with elections within a maximum period of 18 months.
In turn, the head of the Supreme Council of State, Khaled Al-Mishri, denied rumors that there was an agreement for Aqeela Saleh to assume the presidency of the next Presidential Council, and that Al-Mishri would be a deputy in the council.
Al-Mishri said, in statements to February TV, that he does not have the desire or ambition to be a member of the new presidential council, adding that if he decides to continue political life, it will be through the elections, and not through deals to be concluded here and there, according to him.
Al-Mishri stressed that they will not accept undermining the agreements concluded by the Presidency Council without a clear state of stability, as he put it, indicating that they are monitoring what is happening in Sirte, Al-Jufra and the Oil Crescent in conjunction with the rounds of dialogue.
