TRIPOLI, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamed Dbeibah on Thursday called for finding "alternative solutions" in case the House of Representatives (parliament) and the High Council of State failed to agree on a constitutional basis for elections.

During a cabinet meeting, Dbeibah called on the Councils to "issue a fair constitutional basis that is not tailored for a particular person."

"Alternative solutions should be considered if the adoption of a constitutional basis continues to be delayed," Dbeibah said.

The two Councils failed to agree on a legal framework for general elections in the country, as the main dispute revolves around the powers and the mechanisms of electing the head of state.

Dbeibah stressed that his government is committed to holding general elections to achieve stability in the country, pointing out that "the international community understands the need to find a roadmap towards elections without delay and without any party obstructing it".

Libya failed to hold general elections in December 2021 as scheduled, due to disagreements over election laws among the Libyan parties.

Libya has been suffering escalating violence and political instability ever since the fall of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime in 2011. Enditem
