Abdullah Belhaq, a spokesman for Libya's Parliament (the House of Representatives) announced that the house ratified over its sitting held in Tobruk, 1300 km east of Tripoli, the capital city of the country, the law regulating the next legislative elections next December.

Belhaq tweeted that the house passed the laws of the legislative election yesterday so it accomplished laws of the presidential and parliamentarian elections during this legislative season.

On the other hand, members of delegates of the parliamentarian Libyan and the Supreme Council of State call for the international community to support the electoral process in the country.

The two delegates issued a statement, on Friday at the conclusion of their meeting in Rabat, the capital city of Morocco, urging the international community to support elections in Libya according to consented laws and outcomes of the Libyan political dialog.

The two delegates called for results of the presidential and legislative elections scheduled on 24 December in presence of international observers to ensure swift conduct of this important national process.

The Rabat's meeting was attended by Moroccan officials alongside members of the international Mission to Support Libya.

On September 30, Libyan media sources in the eastern and western parts of the country indicated that authorities started actually collecting foreign fighters ahead of the elections scheduled on December 24.

A military source, that was depicted as “prominent”, said that the Libyan Armed Forces have started carrying out recommendations of the 5+5 Committee to expel the foreign fighters of Libya in coordination with countries with an active role in the Libyan file.

“ Al Sharq”, a Libyan daily newspaper, has quoted different military sources in the eastern and western parts of the country, as saying that collecting of the foreign fighters paves the way to deport them outside Libya.

The newspaper pointed out the Syrian fighters had been collected at “Yarmouk”  Camp, which was known also as the “22Armored Regiment”  which was deployed to “Al Hadhba” District in Tripoli, the capital city of Libya.

The foreign fighters will be transferred later to Mitiga International Airport but sources did identify their next destination.

The sources affirmed that expelling the foreign fighters from Libya will be implemented gradually to avoid any attacks that benefit from the withdrawal of these fighters.

According to the sources, some five thousand Syrian fighters were grouped and deported but another group is expected to remain at   Al-Watiya Air Base until holding the elections or shortly ahead of these elections.
