Libyan Parliament Speaker Aguila Saleh said that Libyan elections could be held next November or before, pointing out that the current dispute is over the candidacy of military members and dual nationals.

Saleh added, in an interview with Al-Qahera news channel on Monday evening, that “any law issued by the legislative authority related to the system of government is a constitutional basis for elections that can be built upon.”

He explained that there has been a convergence on the "draft election law", with the exception of two articles.

He added, "If the intentions are true, it is possible to establish a constitutional basis on which the upcoming elections will be held."

The Speaker considered that "what is hindering the elections in Libya is external interference, but now there is a great rapprochement between Libyans, and we expect to agree on the correct constitutional path during the coming period."
