Libyan MPs plan to ask UN to replace Stephanie Williams

A group of Libyan members of parliament are seeking to replace U.N. Advisor on Libya, Stephanie Williams, over her “disrespect for decision of the legislative authority i.e. the House of Representatives,” said Issa Al-Araibi, an MP.

In a memorandum to be sent to the presidency of the House of Representatives, Al-Araibi and other lawmakers will ask the House to formally address U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and make a request for replacing Williams.

Al-Araibi criticized Williams for her disrespect for decision of the legislative authority i.e. the House of Representatives” and for “opening paths of dialogue which are unrelated to the actors in Libya.”

The MP said he will hold Williams responsible if the upcoming talks between the House and the High Council of State fail.

“It would be because of her because she did not care about the Libyan-Libyan agreement that produced the new executive authority led by Fathi Bashagha and the twelfth constitutional amendment.”
