A source from the House of Representatives (HoR) confirmed to the Emirati newspaper Al-Ittihad that Egypt had sent an official invitation to the Speaker of the HoR, Aqila Saleh, and the Head of the High Council of State (HCS), Mohammed Takala, to visit Cairo in the coming days to discuss ways to agree on a common vision for holding elections according to a specific mechanism.
The same source indicated that the meeting aims primarily to address the disagreement between Takala and Saleh on election laws, stressing that the main goal of the meeting is to activate what has been agreed upon by the Sovereign Positions Committee, as well as the laws for presidential and legislative elections prepared by the 6+6 Committee.
Libya Al-Ahrar TV channel also cited the First Deputy Head of the HCS, Masoud Obaid, as saying that a meeting was being prepared between Saleh and Takala in the coming period to reach agreements on electoral laws and prepare for the elections.
Libya Al-Ahrar also cited the member of the HoR, Abdelmonem Al-Arfi, as confirming the intention of Saleh and Takal to hold a meeting next week, saying that the two chambers will discuss the issue of forming the new government and the most prominent points of disagreement, "especially since the HCS had acknowledged the existence of an upcoming meeting, but it was canceled with the approval of the electoral laws."
This anticipated promise of a meeting comes days after the HoR has published the laws for presidential and parliamentary elections in the Official Gazette, despite the controversy surrounding them and the rejection by the HCS.
