Libya’s eastern-based parliament said on Monday it had agreed to adopt the existing parliamentary election law for a parliamentary election that will take place a month after the planned December 24 presidential election.
A statement by parliament spokesperson, Abdullah Belhaiq said the chamber had agreed each article in the law, which will keep parliament at the same number of members.
Belhaiq said the law agreed on Monday was voted on by 70 to 75 members who were present, out of the total of about 200 who were elected in 2014.
“Parliament would switch to voting for individual candidates rather than lists,” he added.
The parliament spokesman did not give a reason for the parliament election having been scheduled in January.
