Tripoli, 7 August 2014:
In spite of the crises taking place in Libya’s coastal cities, the Constitutional Drafting Assembly (CDA) . . .[restrict]has been pushing ahead with its work, holding community dialogue meetings in Sebha and other southern towns.
At a session held this week in Sebha attended by community institutions, civil society organizations and residents, CDA representatives from the region made an illustrated presentation of the constitutional roadmap and gave details of the process thus far.
Attendees were able to ask questions, voice opinions and make suggestions and observations.
LANA reported that CDA members have been connecting with various sub-constituencies in Sebha for the several days. CDA member from Sebha, Mohammed Habib, told the news agency that they were seeing a good turnout for the meetings in spite of all that was happening in the country.
He said that a frequent topic raised at the meetings was the issue of nationality and how hard it is to attain citizenship and the rights that come with it. Others complained about unfair distribution of assets and marginalisation experienced by southern districts.
Habib said that the CDA hopes to speed the process of drafting the constitution and meet its deadlines, pointing out that the assembly has been meeting frequently and plans to next visit the Obari region. [/restrict]
