Williams: Washington won’t allow December elections to be part of Libya’s problem

Former Acting United Nations envoy to Libya Stephanie Williams said that Libya is a priority for the administration of US President Joe Biden, based on the dual mission of Special Envoy to Libya Richard Norland and the participation of Vice President Kamala Harris in the Mediterranean Forum.

During her intervention in the Mediterranean Forum discussion, Williams explained that the United States, like other countries, supports the Libyan elections scheduled for December 24.

The former acting envoy indicated that she does not see shortcomings in the American leadership regarding the Libyan file, pointing out at the same time that Libya has suffered from a legitimacy crisis that will only be addressed through a free and fair electoral process.

Williams also referred to the statement of US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, that these elections should be part of the solution and not part of the problem, stressing that Washington will not allow the December elections to be part of the problem, given the importance of the Middle East and North Africa region, strategically and geographically.
