EU: It is time to create the Roadmap for General Election
“There is no time to lose in approving the necessary legislation,” Borrell continued, urging Parliament “to do its job” and take “concrete steps,” he added.
“Time is running out,” he said, recalling that “there are only 105 days left until December 24.
Borrell welcomed “the many advances made over the past year: ceasefire, unified political institutions and roadmap for elections”.
But “it is time to implement and consolidate this progress,” he insisted.
For her part, the head of Libyan diplomacy wished “more cooperation with the EU”, indicating that she had discussed with her European counterpart the electoral process as well as “the management of the porous borders in the south” Libya, among other issues.
At the end of August, the minister had not ruled out the possibility of postponing the elections if the parliament delayed ratifying the electoral law.
