The spokesman for the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) Abdullah Blehiq, said the session of budget bill deliberations was suspended and would be resumed on Tuesday.

The suspension came after a verbal argument that escalated to a fistfight among HoR members at the budget bill consideration session live on air.

The argument came after discussing the amended budget bill of the Government of National Unity. The HoR Speaker suspended the session for less than two hours at first and then called it off and said it would be resumed the next day.

Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah told a meeting for the financial and planning committee of the HoR that the budget is wanted for providing services to Libyans, urging HoR for passing it so the government can fulfill its achievement goals.
