Algerian President: Building a Libyan state requires getting legitimacy from people

The Algerian President Abdelmajid Tebboune has said resolving Libya’s crisis comes through elections based on institutions and a new constitution that strikes balance in the country’s politics.

Algerian News Agency reported that Tebboune told French journal, La Opinion, Wednesday that the diplomatic movement to solve Libya’s crisis are like “painkillers to extremely ill people”.

It said that he added that the solution Libya can only be through elections, as such temporary solutions, which have been ongoing for years, wouldn’t give viable results.

“Over nine years since the Libyan revolution, the international community has been only doing small solutions that didn’t work and wouldn’t be effective no matter what time they take.” Tebboune said.

He added that the viable way for a solution in Libya is elections to reflect the will of the people, saying it could only take three or four years so that building the country’s institutions can ensue afterwards.

“Elections will bring a new parliament, prime minister or even a president and then a new constitution can be drafted.” Tebboune added.
