The members of the High Council of State (HCS), who rejected the 13th constitutional amendment, renewed their rejection of the amendment, saying they did not and would not participate in the formation of the 6+6 joint committee with the House of Representatives (HoR), due to "the lack of its constitutional basis and the deepening of division and fragmentation and the continuation of chaos." They explained in a statement on [26 March] that the amendment was not carried out in accordance with the regulating constitutional mechanisms and rules stipulated in the constitutional declaration amended by the political agreement (the document regulating governance during the transitional period), in addition to violating the regulations of the HCS and the HoR, which led to appealing the amendment before the Constitutional Circuit Court of the Supreme Court. [...] It is noteworthy that the two chambers have agreed to form a committee between them and they called it "6+6 Committee", whose task will be to prepare a constitutional basis for the elections on the basis of the 13th constitutional amendment, so that the law will be presented later to the two chambers for a vote before its approval.
