Libya’s Supreme Court blocked legal challenges from lower courts to a draft constitution devised by the Constitution Drafting Assembly (CDA) on Wednesday, paving the way for a possible referendum on the document and a move toward elections.
Members of the CDA had voted last summer in favor of a draft constitution, but an administrative court in the eastern city of Al-Bayda had ruled that the vote was invalid.
CDA member said Al-Bayda court ruling was irrelevant, declaring that administrative courts do not have the jurisdiction to rule on matters relating to the CDA
The majority of the CDA members called on the House of Representatives (HOR) to issue a constitutional referendum to pave the way for adopting the constitution and then going to elections.
