    On Monday, the Libyan parliament passed election legislation drafted by the 6+6 Joint Committee.

    The decision was made during a session of the assembly in the eastern city of Benghazi, according to parliamentary spokesman Abdullah Belhaq.

    “The House of Representatives unanimously agreed to issue the law to elect the head of state and the law to elect the National Assembly, which was drawn up by the 6+6 committee,” stated Belhaq.

    The House of Representatives and the Tripoli-based High Council of State, which operates as a senate, constitute the 6+6 Joint Committee to prepare electoral laws.

    The 6+6 committee issued regulations in June to govern Libya’s impending presidential and legislative elections, but they were met with criticism.
