The United Nations Special Advisor on Libya, Stephanie Williams, called for the timetable stipulated in the roadmap of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) to be respected.
In a series of Tweets, Williams expressed that she had discussed challenges facing the electoral process following the High National Elections Commission (HNEC)’s declaration of force majeure, “recalled the timeline laid out in the LPDF roadmap,” and “stressed the need to respect the will of the 2.5 million Libyans who collected their voter registrations cards and called for urgent and serious efforts to address the crisis of legitimacy facing Libya’s national institutions.”
Two days before the presidential elections were scheduled for December 24, 2021, an informed source told Sputnik they would be postponed.
“The elections will not be held on December 24. The Presidential Council will come up with an initiative to change the election dates within a few days. They can be postponed by 4-6 months, and even 8 months,” the source said.
It is noteworthy that June 2022 is the deadline for implementing the agreed-upon political dialogue forum, which includes “inclusive and democratic national elections.”
