HoR member: Return of Speaker Saleh to Parliament could topple roadmap

The member of the House of Representatives (HoR), Ziyad Daghim, said the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) is trying to impose a new reality that serves the interests of foreign stakeholders and excludes prominent Libyan figures from the political process.

Daghim warned that the return of the Speaker of the HoR, Aqila Saleh, could help the UNSMIL execute its new plan, telling Libya Alahrar TV that Saleh’s resumption of public position could topple over the roadmap and the parliamentary committee tasked to devise a new roadmap.

He also called for swift formation of a committee to amend the constitution and then conduct a referendum as soon as possible to ensure reaching the stage of holding elections before the end of 2022.

Dagim reiterated that the mandate of the current roadmap of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) extends until September of this year not June.

On Tuesday, Williams told CNN that the end of June is the date for the end of the roadmap and thus Libya is expected to be plunged into political vacuum afterwards, saying this situation needs serious efforts to hold elections before June.
