The Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aqila Saleh suspended the questioning session of the Government of National Unity on Tuesday and said it would resume on Wednesday, citing late attendance of the government officials and running out of time for the remainder of the session.

A source from Tobruk said the government officials arrived at the Tobruk headquarters of the HoR on time, yet after Saleh greeted them, he announced postponing the session to Wednesday morning, adding that this could be a reaction to the fact that Dbeibah didn't attend the session of August 30; the one set by Saleh for the questioning.

The spokesman for the Government of National Unity Mohammed Hammouda said the Prime Minister and his cabinet will attend the Wednesday session despite the delay, adding that they had given the HoR all the answers of the questions presented to them last week.

Hammouda added that the government found it strange that the HoR had delayed the session with the excuse of the officials being late to arrive at the headquarters despite asking in the first place to hold it as soon as possible.

It's worth mentioning that the Libyan Prime Minister flew back to Tripoli from Tobruk and is set to return on Wednesday morning to attend the questioning session.
