On 10 January, the Head of the Presidential Council (PC), Muhammed Menfi, met with the Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Khalifa Haftar, in Cairo. They reportedly discussed reuniting Libya’s armed groups into a national security entity. Menfi allegedly stated that the PC may move to declare a ‘state of emergency’ if the High State Council (HSC) and the House of Representatives (HoR) fail to promptly agree upon a constitutional basis for elections.
