El-Jarih to Al-Bilad program: Libya Stability Initiative was launched by the late Mahmoud Jibril in 2011

Al-Bilad program on 218News discussed the terms of the Stability Support Initiative led by Foreign Minister Najla Al-Mangoush, asking: Will this initiative support the December 24 elections, and the international community’s position on the initiative at a time when the date of the upcoming elections is getting closer?

The writer and political researcher Mohammed El-Jarih pointed out that the idea of ​​the initiative to support the stability of Libya is to restore ownership to the Libyans, was known at that time as the “Libya Stability Mechanism”, and was announced after the overthrow of Gaddafi, but unfortunately there are external parties that came after the fall of Gaddafi and established military councils and the idea of ​​the stability mechanism for Libya ended, saying that among the figures who devised at that time was Dr. Ahmed Al-Jahani.

El-Jarih said that the basis for the idea of ​​supporting stability is, “why do we leave the external parties who decide the fate of the Libyans, as the initiative emphasizes the need for a Libyan voice in that initiative.” He considered that what Prime Minister Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba is doing is incompatible with the spirit of initiative, describing the initiative in its current form as “unspecified.”

El-Jarih said that the question that must be asked now is: “Is the aim of this initiative to restore power to the Libyans, and why doesn’t this initiative clarify beyond any doubt the confirmation of the December 24 elections?

He confirmed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed by Najla Al-Mangoush, is trying to prevent the head of the Electoral Commission, Emad Al-Sayeh, from meeting the guests of the initiative, and said that “there are parties that started their electoral campaigns, and no one has the right to deprive them of this right guaranteed to them by the road map, adding that this is an affirmation to the world that Libyans want elections, and for the outside world that their position is clear on the December 24 elections.

El-Jarih continued in this regard, stressing that “next Sunday, Emad Al-Sayeh will go out in a press conference to announce that all preparations are ready for holding elections, and the practical solution in Libya is to agree that there is a legitimate crisis and there are institutions that must leave the scene: the House of Representatives and the High Council of State, and the end of all that is with elections on December 24”.

At the end of his speech, El-Jarih explained that “in a previous period, I thought that the Head of the Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi, would go in the direction of unifying institutions, but recently there were indications that the Presidential Council was involved in efforts to postpone elections.”
