Member of the House of Representatives (HoR) Jibril Oheida stated Tuesday that the acceptance of HoR speaker Aqailah Saleh to attend the Palermo Conference reflects his recognition of the Presidential Council headed by Fayez Al-Sarraj.

In a press statement, Oheida explained that the engagement of the HoR in discussing the two most important files -the economy and security arrangements- on which Sarraj's government has been working on since the recent security events in Tripoli is another indication of Aqailah’s recognition of Sarraj.

He pointed out that the meeting between Al-Sarraj and Khalifa Haftar in Palermo confirms that the agreement between the HoR and HCS to replace the Presidential Council has become "obsolete" and that Sarraj will remain in power with the support of the international community.
