Spokesman for the House of Representatives (HoR), Hamouda Sayala, said that the new steps taken by the MPs gathering in Tripoli are aimed to restore the HoR's role as a legislative authority.

"The meetings in Tripoli have been convened on the basis of Article XVI of the political agreement," Sayala clarified.

He also pointed out that the condemnation of the MPs in Tobruk does not represent the HoR.

"The constitutional declaration stipulates that the HoR term is to end by 2015 and there was no referendum for an extension," Sayala explained, indicating that the HoR had derived its legitimacy from the political agreement.
