The High Council of State reiterated its adherence to the political agreement as the sole framework for the political process, rejecting any amendment that contravenes the mechanism stipulated in the agreement - referring to Sarraj-Haftar's agreement last Thursday.

In a statement, HCS emphasized its keenness to end the transitional phase through holding elections, in accordance with a constitutional basis, calling on the House of Representatives (HoR) to work towards ending the division and consolidating the state institutions.

The council also reaffirmed the need to continue with the remedial economic measures, in order to enhance the national economy and lift the burden on the people, according to the statement.
