Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, prime minister of the Tripoli-based government, said on Friday that his executive authority is a “fundamental part of the last transitional stage before going to the elections”.
Dbeibeh made his remarks on Twitter as part of his declaration of support for the U.N. Security Council Resolution 2656, adopted on Friday, which recognizes the desire of the Libyan people for elections and urges the Libyan political institutions and key stakeholders to agree on a roadmap to deliver these elections as soon as possible.
“The Security Council’s resolution to call for elections on a quick constitutional basis while adhering to the road map clearly confirms and means that the current executive authority is a fundamental part of the last transitional stage before going to the elections,” stated the premier.
“Therefore, we renew the call for the parties obstructing the elections to fulfill their obligations,” he added.
The 63-year-old affirmed his commitment to the implementation of the provisions of the road map confirmed by the Security Council resolution to “reach the ultimate goal of ending the transitional stages and completing the elections.”
Dbeibeh also welcomed holding “an expanded national dialogue through which we achieve the stability and safety of Libya”. Meanwhile, he rejected “military solutions and attempts to seize power, which undermine the entire political process and threaten stability and civil peace”.
