The House of Representatives (HoR) has called its members to attend a session at their headquarters in the city of Tobruk.

The meeting, set for Monday and Tuesday according to a statement issued by the presidency of the HoR on Friday, will discuss the amendment of the constitutional declaration and the referendum law on the draft constitution.

The statement also mentions Mohamed Shukri, who was previously voted for by the HoR as the new Governor of the Central Bank of Libya, stating that the MPs will swear him in so that he begins work in his new position.

It is worth noting that the appointment of Shukri by the House of Representatives has been met with objections at various national and international levels as it is stipulated by the Libyan Political Agreement that such positions cannot be offered or changed without the agreement of both the HoR and the High Council of state.
