Libya’s National Committee for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) stressed that the “formation of a unified government is a fundamental condition to ensure the integrity, and success of the upcoming elections.”
“It is crucial for guaranteeing acceptance and commitment to the election results,” the Committee added.
It stated that “fulfilling the requirement of establishing a unified government is of utmost importance, to secure the elections and the transparency of their outcomes. This aligns perfectly with the demands of Libyan people, who view the elections as a constitutional and national entitlement.”
The committee added that “2.5 million voters are still reeling from the disappointment of the scenarios surrounding the December 2021 elections, which shattered the hopes of Libyans.
The indications of the international community’s impact on the political process were evident for the first time.”
Considering the increased voices of Libyans demanding a unified government, the committee sees it as “another sign of the despair with the actions of the Government of National Unity (GNU).”
It noted that “there is scepticism about the government’s commitment to the political and electoral process in Libya, reflecting a lack of trust in this government. Three years have passed with empty promises, emphasizing the need to support these free voices echoing in Tripoli, and across the country.”
Last month, the Speaker of the Libyan Parliament, Ageela Saleh asserted the necessity of forming a unified government.
The primary mission of this government should be to facilitate the electoral process with the support of HNEC.
Fathi Al-Marimi, Saleh’s media advisor, confirmed his determination to form a unified government. He stressed the urgency of conducting the Presidential and Parliamentary elections soon. This was in response to the rumours circulating about the Speaker boycotting the council sessions.
