Libyan Parliament adopts amendment that divides the country into three constituencies

A spokesman for the House of Representatives of Libya, Abdullah Blihaq, announced that the parliament approved on Monday, an amendment to the constitutional declaration (interim constitution since 2011), which divides the country into three constituencies rather than one. Blihaq said in a statement published on the official website of the Parliament that “The parliament resumed its official session on Monday under the chairmanship of its president, Aguila Saleh, in the presence of First Deputy Fawzi Al-Nuwairi and the second deputy, Ahmed Huma.”

He added that “a constitutional amendment was approved, including the fortification of Article VI, of the referendum law on the permanent constitution of the country, under which Libya is divided into three constituencies.”

He went on saying that “Article VI also stipulates that the draft constitution should have 50 + 1 in each region (east, west, and south) separately, in addition to the need for the approval of two-thirds of the people nationwide to pass the constitution.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but how is Libya going to be made more "stable", by whittling it into smaller principalities?!? And how will those principalities interact?!?

I don't know if this resolution is going to create more stability in Libya, or create more of a trend turning completely toward more civil war.
