The spokesman for the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) Abdullah Blehiq said the Government of National Unity questioning session will be held on time next Monday in Tobruk.

The HoR summoned the Government of National Unity for questioning but the Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah said he wouldn't be able to attend because he has a scheduled visit overseas.

The Libyan Prime Minister also said in a televised speech on Friday that the HoR is hindering the work of the government by delaying the budget approval.

The Speaker of the HoR Aqila Saleh said they will withdraw confidence in the Government of National Unity if Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah doesn't show up at the questioning session on Monday, adding that he himself will call for a no-confidence vote because not attending the session by Dbeibah means disrespect.

Speaking to UAE's Al-Ghad TV Channel, Saleh said Dbeibah has no excuse and he better attends the session where MPs will ask questions about the government's negligence in state institutions' unification, electricity, and Coronavirus among other files.

Some HoR members expressed doubt about the holding of the session on Monday due to the lack of consensus on withdrawing confidence, which was demanded by a statement of 27 MPs: pro-Haftar National Sovereignty Bloc, and rejected by many other MPs.
