Norland hails Bathily’s UNSC briefing, stresses to Dbeibah need for holding elections

United States (US) Special Envoy and Ambassador, Richard Norland, commended the United Nations (UN) envoy Abdoulaye Bathily’s briefing to the Security Council for identifying the key obstacles to defining a credible roadmap to parliamentary and presidential elections.

In a tweet by the US embassy in Libya on Wednesday, Richard reaffirmed US support for Bathily’s efforts to bring Libyans together to overcome the obstacles he identified in the briefing.

Norland also said he had spoken in a meeting with the Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah about the importance of finalizing a legal basis and supporting the UN envoy Abdoulaye Bathily’s efforts to move swiftly to elections in keeping with the aspirations of the Libyan people.

Dbeibah’s media office said that he had discussed with Norland the file of holding elections in the nearest time possible, stressing the government’s keenness to make the upcoming elections a success amid a general atmosphere of security and stability and based on fair electoral laws.
