Parliament Speaker Aqila Saleh had proposed a political initiative, which provides for holding parliamentary elections in exchange for a new presidential council headed by Aqila Saleh himself, provided that it would have a term of three years, MP Ziad Daghim has told the local news website, Fawasal.

Daghim described Saleh's initiative and the conditions he put forward as "unrealistic."

He said the Egyptian-Qatari rapprochement will reflect positively on Libya if the leaders of the Libyan scene have political competence.

The MP considered that Turkey's role is essential in the region and that it has common interests with Libya, some of which pass through Cyrenaica.

He also described Saleh's visit to Qatar as positive, indicating that it had been scheduled since last May.
