Parliament Member Issam Al-Jehani expressed his concerns about the upcoming electoral process in Libya. According to Al-Jehani, the division of the executive authority will likely fail the elections. He emphasized that if Libya wants to hold successful elections, it needs to first decide on the file of the executive authority and determine who will supervise it.
In press statements, Al-Jehani went on to explain that the division of the executive authority has caused confusion within the UN mission and that everyone is at a loss as to how to solve this dilemma. Currently, Libya has two governments, one in Tripoli and the other in Benghazi. The Government of National Unity is based in Tripoli and headed by Abdel Hamid Dbeibeh, while the Government of National Stability is based in Benghazi and headed by Fathi Bashagha. It is important to note that both Bashagha and Dbeibeh are from Misrata.
