The Second Deputy Speaker of GNC Saleh Al-Makhzoum Wednesday resigned as the head and member of GNC negotiating team for the UNSMIL-brokered political dialogue.

No reasons were given but his resignation is said to have been accepted and approved by GNC Speaker Nuri Abu Sahmain.

A new round of talks is due to take place in the Moroccan city of Skhirat on Thursday. It's not confirmed if the GNC would go for the dialogue or not.

Last week, the First Deputy Speaker Awad Abdul-Sadiq  said in a press conference that the GNC had decided to boycott dialogue rounds until it receives a clear response from the head of UNSMIL Bernardino Leon ensuring that the GNC's proposed amendments would be included in the latest UNSMIL draft agreement.

On Monday, the head of UNSMIL Bernardino Leon invited the GNC dialogue team to join the next Skhirat meeting and discuss the GNC amendments in the annexes part of the dialogue.
