The New Arab said the new Egyptian proposal for the unification of the Libyan military institution contains forming a military council that represents all political parties, including the Gaddafi regime.

The proposal adds that Khalifa Haftar will be head of the council but with limited authorities, according to the New Arab, which cited a diplomatic source as saying that the decisions the council makes shall be unanimously approved by all its members.

The proposal says that naval and defense forces should be under the command of the defense minister, while others will be under the council’s command.
