A group of political parties unilaterally denounced the law on legislative elections promulgated on Monday by the House of Representatives (HoR), claiming that the HoR had ignored the essential role of civil partisan work which allows ideas and projects to emerge for a better public life.
Parties called on HoR members to endorse an electoral system that relies on political parties with no less than 70% of parliamentary seats in the legislative authority allocated to parties.
“We need an article in the law that says the electoral seat is for the political party and not for the member who will be listed on a ballot. An addition to the law would allow political parties to remove or replace any member on their electoral roll. lists if they had acted differently from party policies. They added.
The parties said the partisan list for the elections should be approved outside the seats of independent candidates in densely populated electoral areas in order to break with tribal and regional blocs and strengthen partisan-based democracy.
They also blamed the HoR for what could happen due to the arbitrary step it took without considering what the Libyans, who are part of official, legal and constitutional organizations, really wanted.
