Al-Sayeh: Libya elections are unlikely to be held in the near future

The Chairman of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Emad Al-Sayeh, has said that the Libyan political environment has become hostile to democratic principles, especially elections, adding that this can be attributed to some factors that have produced negative results and shaped the environment over the past few years.

Al-Sayeh explained in an interview with the US-based Atlantic Council that the absence of a culture of democracy and peaceful transfer of power within Libyan society, and the absence of a constitution to regulate the process of transfer of power as well as negative foreign interference and the ineffective performance of most of the special envoys of the United Nations were among the most prominent factors that led to an unfavorable environment for elections.

He warned that “the continuation of this approach, in the absence of a unified and consensual political leadership, will lead to the exacerbation of political conflicts and the deepening of internal divisions.”
