Sharia should be 'main' source of Libya legislation: NTC
Libya's outgoing National Transitional Council said on Thursday that Islamic law should be the "main" source of legislation and that this principle should not be subject to a referendum.
"The Libyan people are attached to Islam, as a religion and legislation... As such the National Transitional Council recommends that the (next) congress make Sharia the main source of legislation.
"And this should not be subject to a referendum," NTC spokesman Saleh Daroub told journalists in Tripoli.
Libyans are on track to vote on Saturday for a General National Congress, which will be tasked with appointing a new government and a constituent authority.
The constitution needs to be approved in a national referendum, under a transition framework laid out by the NTC which took power from slain leader Muammar Gaddafi last year.
