In addition, according to him, the Parliament supports the requirement for all representatives of Libya "to be real partners in the distribution of oil revenues".

He pointed out that there are attempts to exert pressure on the controlling Tripoli, the national consensus Government Fayeza Zarraga that it has sent troops in the direction of Sirte to the East of the country, because through the towns of Sirte and Misurata is the way to the largest oil fields in the South, over which wants to establish control, the government in Tripoli.
