Libyan Cloud News Agency – Tripoli
The Special Representative of the Secretary General and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Abdoulaye Bathily, arrived in Tripoli on Friday.
Bathily said in a statement that he will lead the United Nations’ good offices and mediation efforts to reach a sustainable and peaceful Libyan-led and Libyan-owned solution.
He indicated that over the coming days, he will first and foremost engage with all Libyan parties across the country, including civil society, women, and youth groups, to listen to their views on the political, security, and economic situations and hear their vision about the future of their country.
“My priority is to identify a consensual pathway towards the holding of inclusive and credible national elections, which should be held as soon as possible on a solid constitutional framework.” He said.
Bathily concluded that restoring the electoral process will support fostering national unity and stability and renew the legitimacy of institutions in the country.
