The Libyan High Council of State (HCS) proposed an initiative to postpone presidential election to next February to be held at the same time with parliamentary election.

The HCS said Wednesday in a press conference that holding presidential elections should be based on a list system that includes a president, two vice presidents, and a prime minister, urging the government and High National Elections Commission to review the registration of voters as per civil registry records and to launch national reconciliation programs for elections to be held on time.

The second deputy head of the HCS Omar Bushah said the current election process could be delayed due to the issues facing the High National Elections Commission and the controversial names who announced their candidacy.

The spokesman of the House of Representatives Abdullah Blehiq said they had formed a committee to communicate with the High National Elections Commission to review the hindrances and issues the election process is facing.
