The Member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) Ali Salabi urged on Wednesday the Head of the UNSMIL Ghassan Salame to cooperate with the Supreme Court in order to supervise the Libyan elections. 

Salabi remarked in an exclusive statement to Quds Press that he found it strange that Salame is not including the judicial institutions in the current negotiations in Tunisia, saying this is not acceptable. 

He also added that the Supreme Court is legitimate and accepted by most Libyans and can issue the laws of elections and constitutional declaration, saying this the best and shortest way and it is better than extending the terms of illegitimate political bodies.   

Salabi also said that the solution in Libya will start with parliamentary and presidential elections under the UN auspices, adding that the current political bodies are shaky and don’t represent the Libyan people not only because they are not productive but also because they did not respect the judicial institutions.   

Meanwhile, the dialogue has been suspended over a dispute between the House of Representatives and the High Council of State over different issues.
