The United States urges all Libyan parties to honor their commitment of holding elections on time
Through their Representative to the UN, the United States once again reiterates the urgency to hold Libyan elections on time
Linda Thomas Greenfield, the United States (US) Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN), met with Libya’s Prime Minister, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, to discuss the most recent ongoing developments and the way to Libyan elections in December.
According to the GNU’s Media office, the US Representative emphasized the importance of a political settlement in Libya, emphasizing her government’s appeal for all Libyan parties to meet the December deadline for national elections.
She urged all parties involved in Libya to work together to guarantee that elections are prioritized by establishing the necessary legal and constitutional frameworks.
She also noted that the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) set the election deadline, which will be a critical step toward ending Libya’s decade-long state of division and conflict.
The Libyan Prime Minister, for his part, applauded the US re-engagement in Libya and the re-establishment of contacts between the two nations. He stated that holding the general elections on the scheduled date is a “national and historic responsibility.”
According to Dbeibah, the Libyan people are entitled to elections on December 24, and achieving that promise would require unity and effective collaboration from all parties. He said that his administration is supporting the electoral commission by allocating funding to it.
He urged the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HCS) to fulfil their obligations and achieve an agreement to hold elections on schedule.
