She added, “I encouraged all representatives to attend the session, assume their responsibility towards the Libyan people, and set a new date and a clear path for the elections, taking into account the 2.5 male and female citizens who received their electoral cards, in addition to the time frame stipulated in the road map of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum.”
The UN official also stressed that “the Libyan people want to end the transitional period, which lasted for years, and with it the successive power-sharing arrangements.”
Williams stated: “I stressed that there will be no solution to the legitimacy crisis that afflicted all Libyan institutions except through the ballot boxes. I also called again on all concerned parties to focus on the electoral process. During the meeting, we discussed the need to keep pace with the processes of national reconciliation and transitional justice for the electoral process.”
