The head of the High Council of state (HCS) Khaled al-Mishri, informed Wednesday, the Libyan High National Election Commission (HNEC) the HCS's rejection of the tenth and eleventh amendments approved by the House of Representatives (HoR) on the constitutional declaration.

This came during a meeting between Al-Mishri and Chairman of the HNEC Emad Al-Sayeh, in the presence of Chairman of the Follow-up Committee for the implementation of the Political Agreement, Ibrahim Sahad, Chairman of the Legal Affairs Committee of the HCS Fathallah Sariri, and Chairman of the Amendment of the Political Agreement Committee Bashir al-Housh.

"The meeting held at the HCS's HQ was devoted to clarifying the HCS's position on the referendum law, and the amendments of the HoR to the constitutional declaration, which is plagued by many legal flaws", the Information Office of the HCS stated.

Al-MIshri has stated earlier that the Constitutional amendments made by the HoR are plagued by several legal irregularities, considering that the referendum law adopted by the HoR is contrary to the political agreement.
