Libya’s Parliament runs session to debate future of elections

The Libyan parliament met on Monday in a session that was hot and decisive in determining the parameters and directions of the next stage and the future of the elections, as well as the fate of the government led by Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba, in light of parliamentary demands to change it.

Media advisor to Parliament Speaker Fathi Al-Marimi said that the session, which took place in the eastern city of Tobruk, was chaired by Aqila Saleh.

The session discussed the blockage in the election file, as well as the proposals reached by the Road Map Committee after the consultations it held with all Libyan parties influential in the political decision.

Some people believe that the formation of a mini-technocratic government with specific tasks that will prepare the necessary arrangements to lift force majeure, unify institutions, stop corruption, and prepare the Libyan arena for elections, while other deputies put forward alternative names to succeed Dabaiba, among them, former Minister of the Interior Fathi Bashagha, and businessman Ahmed Maiteeq.

This step collides with the opposition of the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Stephanie Williams, and some external forces influential in the Libyan crisis, including Britain, who believe that forming a new government in Libya is not a priority and that the focus in the next stage should center on the electoral process.
