He explained that these tracks are: the constitutional path through the referendum on the draft constitution, and the executive authority through amending the Presidency Council with a president, two deputies, and a head of government separate from the Presidency Council.
As for the third track, it is related to activating Article 15 of the 2015 Libyan Political Agreement regarding the agreement between the state and parliament on renaming the occupants of the sovereign positions.
He added that it was agreed to expand the circle of discussion on these tracks through holding meetings "with all the elected bodies in the country."
