Tripoli, 14 September 2015:
Members of the Constitutional Drafting Assembly arrived in Ghadames today on what is supposed to . . .[restrict]be the last leg of their long and often extremely difficult work to hammer out a new draft constitution.
CDA president Ali Tarhouni, who was first off the aircraft that brought him and his colleagues to Ghadeames today, has said that the draft document should be ready by 20 October.
In an interview last week with the Libya Herald, he said that 221 articles of the constitution had been settled and only a single item, which he did not specify, remained to be agreed.
He said that what ought to be the final session of the CDA was likely to last for between a week and ten days. Members would then return to their base in the old parliament building in Beida for their work to be “signed off”.
Tarhouni stressed that the reason the CDA had left its Beida home for Ghadames was to “send a message to all Libyans that we will go anywhere in the country”.
