Political and military stalemates sweep through Libya

The scene of political and field stalemates at the military level has become a predominant feature in the last two months, specifically since after the Libyan National Army was stationed with all its equipment in Sirte and Jufra.

In the political affairs, things are still the same, nothing seems different from previous periods, because the political bodies on the scene have not taken any step that creates an unfamiliar situation.

The elected parliament is still far from convening, even after Turkey escalated its positions, and the Egyptian parliament announced that the army had given it a green light to carry out combat missions in the western strategic direction.

The non-permanent meeting, discussion of events and developments, and the appearance of the image reduces the shares of the Council as a whole, in which there does not seem to be a person active in it, such as its president, Aqila Saleh, who launched an initiative supported by several parties, and then recently carried out a European-Arab tour, hoping to accelerate the pace of political action and cool down the frontlines in return.

For its part, the Presidential Council in Tripoli did not seek the other way towards unifying institutions, ending the division, and making the political process in Libya like other countries that adopt democratic systems and recognized foundations, as it is unable even to provide security services, electricity, water and salaries to citizens who have seen the two issues since the political agreement that was in December 2015.

The High Council of  State also does not move in the same direction, as it is reliant on itself and adheres to its positions and relations, and it always stems from the statements of its President Khaled al-Mishri rejecting the Egyptian, French and Russian role in Libya and escalating in the direction of the House of Representatives and its president, Aqila Saleh, while expressing reservations about any change affecting the current nascent structure Political agreement unless it has a fixed place in it.

The stalemate of the political process in Libya is not new, and Libyans are still waiting for the moment when they see a prosperous political path free of complications.
