UN Envoy to Libya: Presidential elections in Libya are not possible for these reasons

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The United Nations envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, said he meets supporters of the former Libyan regime “every day.”

“I have no difference between a Libyan and another, and I welcomed the supporters of the former regime every day with their various organizations, because they dispersed on a number of organizations; they are for me Libyans like other Libyans,” he said in a televised interview with Al Hurra.

“There is a consensus that the Libyan presidential election is not possible before it clearly defines, in a constitutional text, the powers of the president,” Salame added.

He noted the importance of a “solid constitutional base before the presidential elections” in Libya.

He pointed out that the mission of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) is divided into two levels. The first concerns “improving living standards and gradually restoring normal life to the Libyan citizen”.The second level is the communication with the various political and armed Libyan parties to make the Libyan national dialogue a success.

The UN envoy revealed the presence of more than 15 million weapons in Libya.
