The High Council of State announced on Monday its rejection of the election laws recently approved by the House of Representatives, as they were issued in a non-consensual manner. This came during a meeting by leader Khaled Al-Mishri with the heads of the permanent committees of the Council in Tripoli, according to a statement.
During the meeting, the second deputy speaker of the council, Omar Boushah, gave his briefing on the results of his delegation's visit to the Kingdom of Morocco, and the meeting he had with a House of Representative delegation during the visit.
The statement stated that the council stressed the "acceleration of practical steps to complete the electoral process, adhering to the elections date on December 24 with consensual laws and rejecting repeated violations of the political agreement."
It added that the meeting set a program to clarify the vision of the Supreme Council of State for all local and international parties, regarding the election laws and the council's position on them.
Earlier on Monday, Presidential Council leader Mohamed Menfi, met with Boushah, and stressed the need to accept the results of the elections.
The two discussed the legal and constitutional mechanisms for the elections scheduled for the end of this year, and the development of practical proposals for their success in a manner that meets the aspirations of the Libyan people “and reaching results of which are accepted by all parties,” the council said in a statement.
