The head of the committee for amending the political agreement in the High Council of State (HCS), Musa Faraj said that there is no indication that the referendum on the draft constitution would be held during this year, especially in light of the dispute and the appeals filed against the referendum law.

"The House of Representatives (HoR) has made some amendments to the referendum law that came in violation of the political agreement and the constitutional declaration," Faraj stated, adding that this led some members to submit appeals against the law before the Supreme Court, which it accepted, but had rendered no judgments so far.
