London, January 25th 2021:

The Supreme Judicial Council of Libya yesterday rejected the Bouznika Agreement between the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HSC) which included the political / geographic division of the office of Head of the Supreme Judicial Council and the Office of Attorney General.

It is recalled that the Bouznika HoR-HSC Agreement, announced after a two-day meeting between January 22 and 23, distributed the seven main sovereign positions of Libya – including the head of the Supreme Judicial Council and the Attorney General.

In its closing statement, however, the meeting said on these two positions: “The procedures required by the relevant legislation should be followed.”

It is worth recalling that in October last year the Libyan Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) rejected news from the talks in Bouznika about the political appointment of the two highest judicial posts in the country.

In its statement, the SJC stressed that there are certain mechanisms and procedures in place in the election of the Head of the Supreme Court and the Attorney General.
