The Libyan Prime Minister, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, reiterated Thursday that holding elections in Libya was hindered by the lack of a fair regulatory law based on a consensual constitutional basis.
Dbeibah said in a speech at a seminar organized by a ministerial committee for supporting and holding elections under the slogan “Monitoring Elections Experiences and Learned Lessons”, that his government was open to any initiatives that boost trust in securing elections so that those who wish to prolong transitional periods are left behind.
The Libyan Prime Minister indicated that his government had done all its commitments toward holding elections, enumerating the work done by several government institutions over the last period.
He also said that his government had launched several initiatives to support the democratic experience, especially Youths Parliament, municipal elections, and youths councils’ elections.
“We also called for doing a survey to get the public opinion. Our goal is to hold elections and have a constitution for the country.” Dbeibah said.
He expressed support for the UN envoy’s efforts that aim to commit to the roadmap which puts an end to transitional periods, and pushes all parties for issuing constitutional basis for elections.
