Libya’s High Council of State agreed on Sunday to form a joint committee with the House of Representatives to develop a constitutional basis for national elections.
During an emergency meeting on Sunday, the Council’s members adopted a mechanism for selecting those who will represent the council in the new joint committee. The Council will vote to choose six representatives of the council in the next meeting whose date will be announced later.
Last week, U.N. advisor on Libya, Stephanie Williams, unveiled a new mediation plan which will bring together House of Representatives and the High Council of State to form a “joint committee dedicated to developing a consensual constitutional basis”.
Both the House and the Council must each nominate six members to join the committee, which will convene on March 15 and work for a two-week period to decide a legal framework for the elections.
