Constitution Drafting Assembly member slams deliberate negligence to Libya’s constitution
The member of the Constitution Drafting Assembly (CDA) Nadia Omran, has revealed that there is a deliberate negligence for the swift completion of the Libyan constitution, which she said would be the best solution for Libya’s current status quo, if completed.
Omran told Press Solidarity on Thursday that the CDA are having a close look at the current talks about the holding of presidential and parliamentary elections in the near future.
The Head of the Presidential Council of the UN-brokered Government of National Accord, Fayez Al-Serraj, and other leaders of rival Libyan governments, had reportedly agreed to hold both the presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya in 2018, a spokesman of the Egyptian Armed Forces said Wednesday.
“The government must provide the CDA with the needed support to help it finish the constitution draft and then deliver to the people for polls.” Omran added.
She also said that after the polling, Libya would be able to have a permanent constitution, after which presidential and parliamentary elections can legally take place.
“We need to let go with the idea of creating transitional bodies as we have so many of them governing now in Libya, we need to have a constitutional permanent body.” She concluded.
