Pulbished on:

 Tripoli, 20 September, 2021 (Lana) - The President of the High Council of State, "Khaled Al-Mashri," confirmed that the House of Representatives does not have the right to issue laws on its own, and that its insistence on issuing them is a clear obstruction to holding the elections on time.

 Al-Mishri indicated in a press conference held in Tripoli, Monday, that the parliament sees at this stage the importance of holding legislative elections first, because electing the president in the current situation will not generate stability. Al-Mashri expressed the readiness of the High Council of State to meet with all parties at home, stressing that countries including America, Britain, Italy and a number of Arab countries had made contacts with the aim of reaching a consensus between the House of Representatives and the High Council of State. On the law to elect the president directly from the people, which was issued by a number of members of the House of Representatives, Al-Mashri confirmed that the House of Representatives has many essential observations about it, stressing the need for a constitution that prevents the domination of any of the parties.
