Egyptian Foreign Minister: Libyan HoR is the legitimate elected body

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry praised the role of institutions in Libya, including the procedures of the House of Representatives in Libya, which is the elected legislative body, expressing the Libyan people and entrusted with enacting laws and granting legitimacy to the executive authority, and exercising the oversight role over them, in order to achieve the legitimate aspirations of the Libyans to reach elections that express their will and chart their future.

In his speech during the meeting of the 157th session of the Council of the League of Arab States at the ministerial level, Shoukry added that achieving social peace and preserving identity and national fabric in Libya, which he considered the path towards restoring the country’s stability, can only be reached by the consensus of the active forces in the country, without external intervention.

Shoukry indicated that the stability of Libya can only be achieved through the full implementation of the resolutions issued by the Security Council, the outcomes of the Berlin process and the Paris summit regarding the exit of all foreign forces, mercenaries and foreign fighters from Libya without exception, and within a specific time frame until the country regains its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Shoukry expressed his country’s support for the efforts of the 5 + 5 Joint Military Commission, stressing the need for all parties to commit to stopping military actions in order to preserve the security and stability of Libya and the capabilities of its people.
