UNSMIL: GNU remains the legitimate government in Libya until elections

Libyan Cloud News Agency

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has expressed concerns over the no-confidence vote against the Government of National Unity (GNU) by the House of Representatives (HoR).

UNSMIL confirmed in a statement that the current GNU remains the legitimate government up until it is replaced by another government through a regular process, following the elections.

It pointed out that the main focus of GNU remains bringing the country towards the parliamentary and presidential elections on 24 December 2021 and providing the necessary services to the people.

The head of UNSMIL, Jan Kubis, stressed that UNSMIL expects that the efforts of HoR would focus on finalizing the parliamentary elections law and that the leadership of HoR would advance efforts to build broad consensus on the emerging electoral legislative framework.

UNSMIL urged HoR to complete the work on the parliamentary elections law in the course of the next week, reminding the parties in Libya to adhere to the legal and constitutional framework governing the Libyan political process.

UNSMIL called on HoR and all relevant institutions and political actors to remain focused on completing the preparation of the constitutional and legislative framework for the 24 December elections and to refrain from any action that could undermine the electoral process and the country’s unity, security, and stability.
