UK rejects formation of new government in Libya with open mandate

The British government’s regional spokeswoman for the Middle East and North Africa, Rosie Diaz, expressed refusal to the formation of a new transitional government in Libya.

In a statement to Al Jazeera, Diaz said that the formation of a new interim government threatens to prolong the transitional period without pushing the country towards elections. She further indicated that there is no alternative to the 6 + 6 track, and that the Libyan people want elections as soon as possible, and that the UK, with its international partners, will work to achieve this goal as soon as possible.

The British Diplomat called on Libyan leaders to reach a consensus that ends the transitional stages in the country, reach a comprehensive political process, and work to achieve a political agreement on the electoral law, stressing that her country supports the steps taken by the head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).

Diaz considered that political stability in Libya through the road map presented by the 6 + 6 group would contribute to solving many of Libya’s problems, including the issue of irregular migration.
