Speaker of Libya’s House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, and chairman of the High Council of State (HCS), Khaled Al-Mishri, have agreed to hold another round of talks in Tobruk “in the coming days” after achieving a breakthrough in today’s negotiations in Cairo over the constitutional basis for elections in the country, announced a member of the HCS.
Belkassem Qzit, who was also part of the HCS delegation that accompanied Al-Mishri to Cairo, expects the House and the Council to vote on the constitutional document that was announced today in Cairo “to become effective.”
He also expressed assurances about the elections plan that both Saleh and Al-Mishri have been working on.
“The road map that the leaders of the House and the Council announced today in Cairo will be clear and detailed regarding the timing, mechanisms and procedures of the elections,” explained Qzit.
“The road map will be a time map with specific regulations that include all procedures and laws related to the electoral process,” he added.
The HCS member also revealed that there are two points of contention remain to be resolved between the House and the Council, which are permitting military personnel and dual nationals to run for public office.
