Libyan rivals meetings kicking off in Morocco
Meetings between respective delegations of Libya’s High Council of State and the House of Representatives began Thursday in the Moroccan capital Rabat to discuss electoral law.
The meeting comes as the date for presidential and parliamentary elections gets closer.
Recently, tensions rose between parliament, the High Council of State and the unity government concerning electoral powers and laws.
The head of the High Council of State, Khalid Al-Mishri, on Sept. 21 during a visit to Rabat, rebuffed an earlier decision by the House of Representatives to withdraw confidence from the Dbeibeh unity government, insisting he would continue working with it until elections take place.
Morocco also hosted Libyan Parliament Speaker Aguila Saleh two weeks before Al-Mishri’s visit.
Morocco previously hosted five rounds of dialogue between Libya’s disputing sides, the last of which was in January when a mechanism for assuming sovereign positions was agreed on.
