UN welcomes Libyan Parliament’s Constitution referendum law


UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) on Tuesday welcomed the constitution referendum law amendment made by the Eastern-based House of Representatives.

The UNSMIL said on its Twitter account that the mission welcomes the Libyan parliament’s efforts to issue the required legislation, so that Libya can turn to “solid and stable institutions through a referendum on the draft constitution and general elections.’’

On Monday, the parliament voted to amend the referendum law, as well as to reform the Presidential Council to consist of one president and two deputies, instead of the current one that consists of one president and nine deputies.

The constitution referendum law was approved by the parliament in September. Libya has been struggling to make a democratic transition amid political division, insecurity and chaos. (Xinhua/NAN)
