Libya Dialogue Group Approves Amendments to Libyan Political Agreement
On 24 January, the Libya Political Dialogue group met in Tunisia and agreed in principle to a number of amendments to the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA). However, no official decision has been made because there was no House of Representatives (HoR) delegation attending the discussions.
The Libya Herald reports that:
Under the new proposals, a new three-man Presidential Council (PC) with a head and two deputies, separate from the government, would replace the current unwieldy nine-man PC. A different prime minister would be appointed. Additionally, a new military council would be formed comprising the heads of the PC, HoR and the State Council, the Dialogue team said in a statement.
The State Council would also in future comprise all those elected to the former legislative authority, the General National Congress, in July 2012. Replacements would not be acceptable unless they replaced originally elected members who had died or resigned.
