Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aqila Saleh, requested the High National Electoral Commission (HNEC) to expedite the referendum process on the draft constitution.

In a letter addressed to Chairman of the Board of the HNEC Awad al-Fituri, Saleh urged the commission to adopt all necessary steps, in order to hold the referendum as soon as possible.

The HNEC received the end of last November, the referendum law on the Constitution upon its ratification by the HoR.
