Commenting on Friday’s demonstrations that took place in several Libyan cities, Stephanie Williams, UN Special Adviser on Libya, said “the people’s right to peacefully protest should be respected and protected but riots and acts of vandalism such as the storming of the House of Representatives headquarters late yesterday in Tobruk are totally unacceptable.”

The leaders of Libya’s House of Representatives and High Council of State have reached today “unprecedented consensus” after holding two-day talks in Geneva under facilitation from the United Nations, announced Stephanie Williams, a special advisor to the U.N. Secretary-General.

Informed sources have reported that the talks currently taking place in Geneva between the presidency of the Libyan House of Representatives and the State Council are stumbling and could fail due to the two parties’ disagreement over the issue of the candidacy of Libya dual nationals in any upcoming elections.
