UNSMIL confirmed in a statement that all candidates had pledged to respect the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum roadmap with regard to the preparatory period paving the way for the holding of national elections on December 24, 2021. 

“The candidates also pledged that should they be selected for the executive authority, they will present to the relevant oversight authorities a declaration of their own movable and immovable assets inside and outside of Libya, as well as those of their spouses and minor children.” UNSMIL said.

They further pledged not to put themselves forward for elections at the end of the preparatory period and signed a legally-binding affidavit confirming their conformity to the existing Libyan nationality law. 

With regard to candidates drawn from the military or judiciary authorities, the verification committee stipulated that their candidacies should conform with existing Libyan laws and regulations. 

“Following its review of the matter but noting that this is a Libyan-owned process, it is the Mission’s position that these candidates should comply fully with the relevant laws and regulations with regard to engaging in political activities or running for political office.” UNSMIL pointed out.
