Al-Mishri: UN pressuring for allowing military figures to run in Libya elections

The Head of the High Council of State, Khalid Al-Mishri, said the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the international community are pressuring them to allow military officials to run in the upcoming elections.

Al-Mishri told reporters on Saturday that conditions for candidacy in the upcoming elections must be logical and cannot be made to fit a certain person.

He also said the High Council of State supports holding elections on December 24, adding that transitional phases in Libya must end as they are part of the causes of suffering for Libyans.

Al-Mishri remarked that the issue of constitution isn’t a marginal one, adding that the High Council of State is fighting for the right of people to have a referendum on the constitution.
