The head of the High Council of State (HCS) Khaled al-Mishri expressed his regret on the non-adherence of some Libyan parties to the Paris Declaration which provided for the holding of presidential and parliamentary elections on December 10.

During a meeting with French Ambassador to Libya Béatrice du Hellen on Tuesday in Tripoli, Al-Mishri stressed the necessity of holding a referendum on the constitution as soon as possible, before the presidential and parliamentary elections, according to the HCS Information Office.
