Bouznika, June 8 (TNA) Following talks in Morocco, representatives of the rival camps in Libya announced that they had reached an agreement on the legal provisions governing the elections due to be held in the country.
A joint committee made up of the parliament in eastern Libya and the High State Council (HSC), which acts as the Senate and is based in the west, met in Bouznika, south-west of Rabat, from 22 May to 6 June.
The aim was to find common ground on the legal texts that are supposed to govern the presidential and legislative elections, which were initially scheduled for December 2021 before being postponed indefinitely.
"The members of the committee reached an agreement on the laws governing the presidential and legislative elections", declared Jalal Chouehdi, representing Parliament, at a press conference in Bouznika on Tuesday night. "All that remains is for the laws to be ratified by Parliament", said Omar Boulifa, head of the HCE delegation.
