Libya’s Supreme Electoral Commission today proposed a one-month postponement of the presidential election, scheduled for December 24, after a parliamentary committee ruled it “impossible” to hold it on the scheduled date.
Earlier in the day, al-Hadi al-Schgayer, chairman of the parliamentary committee in charge of monitoring the presidential election, said in a statement to parliament: “After a debate with parliament, the Supreme Electoral Commission “January 24, 2022. Parliament will take the necessary measures to remove obstacles to the electoral process.”
“After consulting the techniques, court reports and security reports, we inform you that it is impossible for the elections to be held on December 24, 2021, as provided by the electoral law,” he added, but did not suggest another date for the presidential election. .
