The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – Libya’s former delegate to the United Nations, Ibrahim al-Dabbashi, called on the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to seek a formula for cooperation between the Libyan National Army’s (LNA) General Command and the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) to agree on a constitutional basis for legislative elections in the first half of the new year, followed by presidential elections three months later .
“There is no doubt that such a decision could be the focus of the expected results of the Libyan conference, which should be held as soon as possible, preferably before the end of January 2019, and with the participation of representatives of all municipalities to enhance the legitimacy of its decisions,” al-Dabbashi said.
“The absurdity of the House of Representatives, the opportunism of the so-called State Council and their loss of responsibility have deprived the UNSMIL from a reliable partner in formulating an acceptable and practical solution that ends the use of arms and ends the suffering of the Libyans,” he added.
“The Mission has no choice but to work separately from the two councils, in cooperation with the internationally legitimized GNA and LNA, which has imposed itself as a regular armed force that protects homeland and maintains security throughout the Libyan east and vast areas of the west and south of the country,” al-Dabbashi pointed out.
