Libyan Leaders Agree On Unified Government To Oversee Elections

IN a significant development toward stabilizing Libya, leaders from different factions have reached a crucial agreement to establish a unified government tasked with overseeing the country’s long-delayed elections. The heads of the East Libya-based parliament, the Tripoli-based High Council of State, and the Presidency Council convened in Cairo on Sunday for talks facilitated by the Arab League, with the aim of addressing key challenges and paving the way for national reconciliation.

According to a statement released by the Arab League, the three leaders have agreed to form a technical committee responsible for evaluating amendments to broaden consensus and address outstanding issues. The formation of a unified government, envisioned to supervise the electoral process, provide essential services to citizens, and consolidate sovereign positions, was among the key agreements reached during the talks

‘The necessity of forming a unified government whose mission is to supervise the electoral process, provide the necessary services to citizens, and unify sovereign positions,’ the statement emphasised.

Moreover, the leaders have extended an invitation to the United Nations mission in Libya and the international community to lend their support to this consensus, underscoring the importance of collaborative efforts in ensuring the success of the upcoming electoral process.

The meeting, attended by prominent figures including Parliament Speaker Aguila Saleh, head of the High Council of State Mohamed Takala, and head of the Presidency Council Mohamed Menfi, marks a significant step forward in Libya’s journey towards stability and democratic governance.

Since the ousting of long-time ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya has grappled with internal strife and division, with the country split between the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord and the Benghazi-based warlord Khalifa Haftar. The agreement reached in Cairo signals a renewed commitment to national unity and the pursuit of a peaceful and inclusive political transition.
