The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TOBRUK – The Libyan House of Representatives headed by Chancellor Aguila Saleh has now entered the stage of judicial appeals, after the adoption of the referendum law on the draft constitution on Tuesday, sources told The Address.
The sources said today that the adoption of the referendum law on the draft constitution “by way of signatures” contradicts the internal regulations of the House of Representatives, which stress that the vote on laws and legislation should be direct and in the presence of the voters personally.
The Address sources also said that the adoption of the referendum law on the draft constitution contradicts the outcome of the Paris Agreement reached by the Libyan rivals in the French last June. The agreement, which was endorsed by the UN Security Council, stresses on the need to prepare for the holding of parliamentary and presidential elections in the country to get out of the political deadlock in Libya since the declaration of the Skhirat Agreement in December 2015.
