Iraq Highly Commends Morocco’s Role in Reaching Compromises on Libya’s Electoral Law

Iraq has highly commended the role played by the Kingdom of Morocco in bringing about successful dialogue and compromise on the electoral law in Libya, while offering political parties the opportunity to play a major role in the electoral process. In a statement, the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the announcement by the Libyan “6+6” joint commission tasked by the House of Representatives and the High Council of State in Bouznika on Wednesday that its members had reached a compromise on the laws governing Libya’s presidential and parliamentary elections. The Ministry expressed the hope that these compromises would help advance the political settlement process in Libya, in a way that serves the hopes and aspirations of the Libyan people. The “6+6” joint commission announced on Tuesday that, after two weeks of meetings in Morocco, its members had reached a compromise on the laws governing the presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for the end of the year. The Bouznika meeting is a continuation of the series of meetings hosted by the Kingdom, bringing together the various Libyan parties with a view to deepening dialogue on the ways and means of resolving the crisis in the country, following an approach that provides the right space for dialogue and constructive consultation.
