The president of the Libyan Parliament Aguila Saleh ratified the law relating to the next election of the Libyan head of state, an approach commented on by other political institutions and several deputies who wish to submit the text to the parliamentary vote.

Abdallah Bliheq, spokesperson for the elected Libyan Parliament, posted on Facebook Thursday a text of 75 articles signed by Aguila Saleh the day before, supposed to govern the candidacy and the election of the future president on December 24. This will be the very first direct ballot.

“A law to be debated”

But this long-awaited approach has been commented on by other institutions such as the High Council of State (HCE) and a group of 22 deputies who accuse Aguila Saleh of not having submitted the text to a parliamentary vote.

Transmitting the law to the Electoral Commission and the United Nations “without a vote, overrides the Interim Constitutional Declaration, Political Accord and Parliament’s Rules of Procedure”, Indicated these parliamentarians in a statement published by local media.
