Court invalidates Libyan Parliament

The Libyan government is going through a chaotic phase and the country struggling to get back on its feet. The chaos started right after the killing of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The country is now in turbulence with power in the hands of the Islamist Militia and local competing regional powers
Libya’s Supreme Court invalidated the current internationally recognized parliament elected in June this year, saying that the conditions in which it was elected is not right. The current Parliament had shifted base to Tobruk near Egyptian border. They had fled from the capital Tripoli trying to escape the Islamist led militia. The Supreme Court works from Tripoli which is under the Islamist militia rule.

The Parliament has rejected the Court’s ruling stating that they have been elected by the Libyan people. In a situation where the current Parliament consisting of House of Representative members has to accept the Court ruling, it will once again leave Libya in a lurch with no formal government to take over.
It can also lead the previous power lead by the General National Congress as the only valid democratically elected legislature in the country. But with most of the 120 member of the GNC away from the country due to security issues, the 46 odd member left will not be able to have the 120 member quorum its by-laws require.
