We request the key political authorities to resolve the current political crisis through the democratically established and tested institutions, as early as possible, and in the best interest of the country,” it said. ICCSL is the domestic chapter of the International Chamber of Commerce Paris, the largest and most representative business organisation in the world. Its six million members in over 100 countries have interests spanning every sector of private enterprise.
