The head of the interim Government of National Unity, Abdel Hamid Dbeibeh, expressed his government’s openness to any initiative or proposal that “enhances confidence in the implementation of the elections and blocks the way for those who seek to enter the country into new transitional stages.”
“The National Unity Government committed itself to the tasks entrusted to it and protected the electoral process,” Dbeibeh said on Thursday, at the symposium of the Ministerial Committee for Support and Implementation of Elections in the government, under the title “Election Monitoring Experiences and Lessons Learned.”
Dbeibeh: The lack of a fair election law is the reason for its delay
“There is no doubt that the convening of this meeting of yours is of great importance for several factors, the most prominent of which is the government’s assertion that we have no choice but elections, and that what hinders it is the absence of a fair election law that emerges on a fair constitutional basis for all,” Dbeibeh added.
He renewed his support of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, and “the positive pressure exerted by the United Nations organization to issue the legal basis for the elections.”
“Our government has launched several initiatives to support democratic education, starting from the Youth Parliament and municipal elections, and has actually directed to conduct national inquiry where we can find out the opinion of the Libyan people on public opinion issues. Our goal has always been to reach this train to the final station … the station of elections and the constitution,” Dbeibeh concluded.
