HSC: We are keen on holding the elections on time

Libya’s High Council of State said Sunday that it is keen on holding the Libyan elections on time as scheduled.

The council head, Khaled al-Mishri, met on Sunday in Tripoli with Italian Ambassador Giuseppe Buccino and special envoy Nicola Orlando.

Al-Mishri said the council is keen on reaching a consensus with the House of Representatives (parliament) on election laws.

“The council finalised a draft for the constitutional basis and proposed laws for the parliamentary and presidential elections, and to consult about them with the House of Representatives,” he added.

On Saturday, Libya’s elections commission said 10,729 Libyans living abroad have registered for the upcoming elections.

The commission said 2,856,624 Libyans are eligible to cast a ballot in the Dec. 24 vote.
