Libya's parliament postpones legislative elections to January 2022

The Xinhua reported, Libya's House of Representatives (parliament) on Tuesday decided to postpone the legislative elections to January 2022 instead of Dec. 24, 2021.

Abdullah Blehig, spokesman of the House of Representatives said: "The legislative elections will be held 30 days after the presidential election of the country."

He stressed the keenness of the parliament to ensure that the president will be directly elected by the people, given what the country has gone through over the past several years due to the lack of a president.

The Xinhua mentioned, the elections are part of a roadmap adopted by the UN-sponsored Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF).
