Libyan official calls for unified government to end political crisis

Tripoli, Aug 3 (Prensa Latina) The president of the Libyan House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, noted the need to establish a unified government to hold general elections and end the political crisis that is affecting the country.

The official made his comment during a meeting with the United Nations Special Representative for Libya, Abdullah Batili, in the eastern city of Al-Quba.

According to Abdallah Blehaq, a spokesman for the legislative body, both parties discussed the situation in the country, which has had two parallel governments since last year.

They also discussed the efforts to hold presidential and parliamentary elections, repeatedly postponed due to disagreements among rival factions.

Batili met on Sunday with Muhammad Al-Manfi, president of the Presidential Council, whose headquarters is in Tripoli.

A committee was recently established to draft new electoral laws recently approved by the High Council of State (Senate) and the House of Representatives, who oppose each other.

After a year of relative calm, tensions escalated in February 2022, when the House of Representatives appointed Fhati Bashagha interim Prime Minister, replacing Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, who announced that he would only hand over power to the authorities chosen in elections.
