The First Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR), Fawzi Nuwairi, called on members of the HoR to move to the Benghazi headquarters and abide by what he called their constitutional duty.

In a statement published on the official website of the HoR, Nuwairi added that they will work to complete procedures and amend a number of decisions required for meetings to continue.

He urged the head of the HoR secretariat to begin equipping the headquarters of parliament in Benghazi as soon as possible.

Nuweiri added that the constitutional declaration states that the permanent headquarters of the House of Representatives is the city of Benghazi, adding that three years ago they could not meet there after being informed by the Ministry of Interior and the security services of the impossibility of holding House of Representatives meetings in Benghazi.
