UN urges Libyan parties to refrain from actions that undermine stability

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on all parties to refrain from taking any actions that would undermine stability and deepen divisions in Libya, expressing concern over reports that the vote of confidence in the Libyan government did not live up to standards of transparency, in addition to what was rumored about the actions of intimidation before the start of the session.

In a statement, the spokesman for the Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, indicated that Guterres reiterated the importance of preserving the unity and stability of Libya, which came after the signing of the ceasefire agreement between the parties in the country in October of the year 2020.

Guterres stressed the need to fulfill the desire of more than 2.8 million citizens to vote in credible, transparent and inclusive elections on a constitutional and legal basis.

Dujarric revealed the intention of the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Libya, Stephanie Williams, to invite a joint committee of the House of Representatives and the High Council of State as soon as possible in order to lay a consensual constitutional basis that would lead to the holding of national elections as soon as possible.
