UN envoy to Libya Abdoulaye Bathily has said the 71st anniversary of Libya’s Independence Day this year “feels bittersweet as it also marks the first anniversary of the postponement of general elections which were supposed to be held on 24 December 2021.”

Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), Aguila Saleh, sent an official letter to the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, regarding the invalidity of any memorandums of understanding concluded by the Government of National Unity (GNU) headed by Abdel Hamid Dbeibeh, noting that they have no legal effect and do not bind the Libyan state.
