The High Council of State (HCS) Head, Mohamed Takala, on Wednesday, received a high-level American delegation to discuss the electoral laws and solutions for achieving stability in Libya.

The US delegation included the Special Envoy to Libya, Richard Norland, the Deputy Head of the American Mission to Libya, Jeremy Berndt, the Head of the Political Department, Lindsay Covey, and the Political Officer, Claire Ashcraft.

A statement by the HCS information office said the debate focused on the political developments, solutions to achieve stability in Libya, and efforts to hold elections on the grounds of the 6+6 Joint Committee outcomes.

Takala has previously stated the Council's adherence to the 6+6 Committee, which the HCS and Parliament signed on June 3rd, 2022, in Morocco's Bouznika, refusing any further amendments to the text.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR), Aqila Saleh, insists that the electoral laws were issued as drafted and approved by the 6+6 Committee under the 13th constitutional amendment, pledging to move forward with the presidential and parliamentary elections.

On Monday, the High National Electoral Commission (HNEC said it had received the laws governing the presidential and parliamentary elections approved by the HoR in its session last week.

The commission urged the political forces to agree on the legal framework for the elections to enable the HNEC to assume its responsibilities.
