The House of Representatives has postponed today’s session to “the end of the week or to next week”.
The HoR failed to attract enough members to Tobruk with many being distracted by the events in Tripoli as well facing logistical problems due to the closure of Tripoli’s Mitiga airport.
It will be recalled that this was going to be yet another important HoR session planned to vote on a constitutional amendment needed for the referendum law.
According to Libya’s current temporary constitution, a referendum is needed to approve or reject the draft constitution.
It is hoped that Libya can organize elections in order to exit its current weak “transitional” political and constitutional state and start rebuilding strong state institutions.
