Libya's Council of Sheikhs, Dignitaries and Elders affirmed their "full support" for Presidential Council leader Mohamed Menfi's plan for national reconciliation.

Alwasat learned from a source close to the Presidential Council that the group demanded on Saturday, "the necessity of issuing presidential decrees dissolving and freezing the work of the House of Representatives and the High Council of the State and all transitional stages, with the holding of parliamentary and presidential elections as soon as possible."

On Thursday, the Presidential Council launched its strategic vision for national reconciliation during a conference in Tripoli.

The vision deals with “the roots of the conflict,” and focuses on “national identity, the system of governance, decentralization and transitional justice.”

In his speech during the conference, Menfi said that Libya needs national efforts to get it out of the circle of foreign interference and dependency.
