Representatives from the General National Congress and Tobruk Parliament signed late on Saturday a declaration of principles to end the political conflict in the country.

The representatives, headed by GNC First Deputy President Awad Abdul-Sadiq and HoR member Ibrahim Amish, met in Tunisia and agreed to solve the Libyan problem without any foreign mediation.

Both sides agreed to set up a joint committee of 10 (5+5) to select a government of unity made up of a prime minister and two deputies, one represents the GNC and another represents the HoR.

They also agreed to return to the 1963 Libyan Constitution, select a panel to amend the constitution to cope with the current situations, and prepare for new parliamentary elections in two years' time.

The declaration of principles would be submitted to both parliaments for approval before it enters into force.
