European MP: Sarraj is Turkey’s Puppet and Unqualified to Represent Libyans – Al Marsad

A member of the European Parliament (MEP), Javier Nart, lashed out on the Government of National Accord (GNA) headed by Fayez Al-Sarraj, calling it as illegitimate.

(Libya, 29 May 2020) – Member of the European Foreign Affairs Committee and the European Security Subcommittee, Javier Nart, during his participation in a conference entitled “Developments of Libyan Crisis” organized by the Brussels International Center for Research and Human Rights, as reported by the website Sky News Arabia on Friday, indicated that Sarraj’s blind dependency on Turkey does not qualify him to be a legitimate representative of the Libyan people, as the qualified representative should not be sucked into the ideological orbit of external parties.

The MEP considered that this collusion constitutes a serious disservice to the Libyans and promotes chaos, wars, and militia rule.

“We made a monster in Tripoli and has gone out of control,” Nart said, adding that the residents of the eastern regions see the Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, as capable of making peace and stability and achieving the desired development.

Referring to the stable conditions in the eastern region, Nart pointed out that the refugees and migrants are striving to leave the areas controlled by the so-called GNA.

“Why do not the similar masses leave the eastern region? This is clear evidence of the stable conditions in the areas controlled by the government of the House of Representatives (HOR) there,” argued Nart.

“Talking about the GNA’s legitimacy is a form of absurdity from both the political and legal perspectives, especially since any government remains illegitimate unless endorsed by the HOR in Tobruk.”

The MEP said that Sarraj does not represent an acceptable legal reality because he controls a handful of unrestrained militias, which have been fighting among themselves without paying attention to Sarraj.
