The third and final round of Libyan talks began in Cairo on Sunday to discuss laying down a constitutional framework for holding the country’s presidential and parliamentary elections, and how to secure them at a time when the Libyan capital, Tripoli, has been beset by armed clashes. The Libyan Constitutional Track Committee – formed according to a UN initiative to resolve the Libyan crisis – will meet to complete the remaining provisions of the constitutional rule, on the basis of which the general elections will be held. The interlocutors representing the Libyan House of Representatives and the High Council of State had postponed the discussion on these points to this session, after deciding 70 percent of the constitutional rule during the last round on May 20 in Cairo. It urged the Libyan security and political parties to exercise the utmost restraint and display the qualities of responsible leadership, and resolve all disputes through dialogue. Thick smoke rose between the buildings, and the sounds of shooting were clearly heard, without explaining the reason for these clashes.
