The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah welcomed the statement issued by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Abdoulaye Bathily, in which he urged all parties to “accelerate consultations on ways to move forward in the political process, and create conditions for holding elections.”
The Libyan Prime Minister said on Twitter that his government is with the will of more than 2.8 million voters who want an end to the transitional periods in Libya.
Bathily said that for logistical reasons beyond the UNSMIL’s control, the important meeting for the resumption of the political dialogue between the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HCS) cannot take place in Zintan.
In a statement on Saturday, Bathily urged all Libyan institutions, including the Presidential Council, the HoR and the HSC to engage in dialogue in search for a solution and the acceleration of on-going efforts.
He further urged the HoR and the HCS to agree on a mutually acceptable location and date for their meeting, which should come up with concrete, implementable and timebound proposals for a consensual way out of this crisis.
