Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh said on Sunday that a dialogue committee was established to draft a new election law.
According to the Libyan state news agency LANA, Dbeibeh said that at the cabinet meeting, the committee members will be selected to cover three different regions (Tripolitania, Fezzan and Cyrenaica) of Libya.
Emphasizing that the newly formed dialogue committee is a part of the national reconciliation process, Prime Minister Dbeibeh announced in February the plan to be implemented for the elections to take place on June 30.
The presidential elections, which were planned to be held on December 24, 2021, were canceled and a new interim government was formed in the country by the Tobruk-based parliament under the leadership of the former Minister of Interior Fathi Bashagha.
As a result of political tension between the parties, an armed convoy supporting Fathi Bashagha, who is backed by the Tobruk-based House of Representatives in Libya, departed from Misrata to the capital Tripoli on Thursday to force Bashagha to power.
