The Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) concluded the budget endorsement session on Tuesday without approval, saying a new session will be held on June 29.
Sources from the HoR said the budget bill was sent to its planning and finance committee with a Government of National Unity’s committee for providing the last remarks on the budget so the HoR can vote again late this month.
The HoR sent the budget bill for consideration to its planning and finance committee more than once and the government amended the bill, yet the HoR is still reluctant to approve it, which observers see as intentional prolongation.
The HoR suspended Monday the session over arguments that escalated to a fistfight between two members over the budget bill entanglement.
