Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) Spokesperson Fawzi al-Nuwairi stated that, as a result of the evaluations made, the meetings to discuss the postponement of the elections will be held next week.

Previously, Libyan High National Election Commission (HNEC) President Emad al-Sayeh suggested that the presidential elections be postponed for at least six months and take place in January 2022.

The HoR discussed the issue of postponing the elections for six months and starting a reconciliation process between the parties in the session on Monday, December 27, and various suggestions were presented by members.

Within the scope of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), which was previously held under the leadership of the UN, it was decided to hold the presidential elections on December 24, 2021.

However, due to the controversial election law and candidacy debates, a consensus could not be reached on the legal infrastructure of the elections.

It is claimed that the election law unilaterally enacted in September by HoR President Aguila Saleh is the mainstay of the debate.
