Libya’s CDA says UNSMIL can’t amend constitution before referendum

The Chairman of the Libyan Constitution Drafting Assembly (CDA), Al-Gilani Erhouma, said Monday that the UNSMIL’s constitutional track violated Security Council Resolution 2542 of September 2020.

The Chairman of the Constitution Drafting Assembly said, in a letter to the UN acting envoy Stephanie Williams that the UNSMIL shouldn’t propose options that oppose the already approved track of constitution as they could lead to ignoring the draft constitution achieved by the assembly that was elected by the people.

He said that such work is at odds with the mandate of the UNSMIL, adding that only the Libyan people via referendum can amend the draft constitution.
