The member of the High Council of State Saad Ben Shrada said they will vote Thursday on the proposal lodged by the House of Representatives (HoR) to reshuffle the Presidential Council (PC.)

Ben Shrada said Wednesday that the HCS held a consultation session with 50 members attending to discuss the HoR proposal, adding that they had voiced preliminary agreement on selecting a new PC that would unite executive authority in Libya.

He also said that the HCS members had welcomed earlier the passing of a constitution referendum law by the HoR, saying they all agreed that executive authority in Libya should be unified to oversee the polls.

The Head of HoR dialogue committee sent the proposal to his HCS counterpart Mousa Faraj for endorsement.

Two deputies and one head is the newly proposed Presidential Council, according to the second article of the proposal.

Selection will be by choosing one PC member from each region in Libya by the HoR and HCS after two weeks following the HoR’s inclusion of the Skhirat political agreement in the constitutional declaration.

After endorsing the new PC members buy the two councils, HoR will elect one the members a president of the PC, which will in turn elect a Prime Minister in a week time, after that the two councils form a committee to agree on sovereign posts’ nominations.
