The Libyan Presidential Council has tasked deputy Abdullah Al-Lafi to hold urgent discussions with political parties to reach consensus on ending the current political deadlock in the country.

The Presidential Council said in a brief statement Tuesday that the plan will be a roadmap that ends transitional periods via parliamentary and presidential elections in a specific timeline, adding that the roadmap will also boost national consensus and trust among all parties.

"Maintaining unity of Libya, ending signs of war and partition, boosting peace and security, limiting foreign intervention and pushing for a national solution are major components of the roadmap." The statement reads.

Since last Friday, protests were seen in different cities across Libya, where people called for the stepping down of all current political institutions and parties, urging the Presidential Council to freeze the House of Representatives and High Council of State and form a mini government to oversee the holding of elections.

News about the freezing of bodies' move by the Presidential Council was circulated lately in Libya and such statements by Haftar's general command, Bashagha's ministers and HoR members that say they wouldn't recognize unilateral moves could mean the Presidential Council's intentions are somehow real.
