Presidency of Parliament clarified, on Saturday, the truth about the tendency to postpone the elections.
A member of the Presidency, Bashir Al-Haddad, said that "no formal request has yet been submitted to the House of Representatives to amend the election law, despite the many media statements by some individuals and parties demanding that."
He added, "If the government or the presidency of the republic requests this through a draft law for amendment, or a request is submitted by ten deputies or one of the specialized committees according to Article 60 of the constitution, the parliament proceeds with the legislative procedures."
Al-Haddad explained, "The House of Representatives has fulfilled its duties and obligations to conduct early elections, after the Council legislated the laws of the Independent High Electoral Commission and the House of Representatives elections, and dealt with the problem of the Federal Court by amending its law." The House of Representatives is one of the government's prerogatives in coordination with the Electoral Commission. So far, the prevailing and general trend of the government and the Commission is to prepare for the elections in October of this year and to exclude the hypothesis of postponement.
The Vice President of the House of Representatives affirmed that "the majority of political parties are with the elections being held on time and no party has requested to postpone them, and all agree that creating an appropriate environment of electoral security, transparency and broad participation is the task of everyone, and the government should commit to providing it to ensure successful elections."
