السيد ناصر بوريطة يستقبل رئيس مجلس النواب الليبي
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, MFA Nasser Bourita, received on September 2, 2021 in Rabat, the Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives, Mr. Aguila Saleh.

During a joint press conference following their talks, MFA Bourita said that meeting the deadline of holding of elections, on which Libyans and civil society have agreed, is "a necessary and fundamental step to restore stability in Libya".

"Libya is going through a decisive stage of its political process and holding elections on December 23 is the only way to settle the Libyan crisis," stressed MFA Bourita. He also emphasized that the "resolution of the crisis cannot be achieved through Congress or external interference, but by the Libyans themselves through the democratic exercise and the organization of elections on due date".

The Minister highlighted the essential involvement of all Libyan institutions that must assume their responsibilities in the preparation and success of these elections, saying that the House of Representatives of Libya is a key player in this process, given its legislative role and the prerogatives conferred on it by the Constitutional Declaration and the agreements reached between the Libyan parties.

Noting the need to act according to the existing foundations and legal references to hold these elections, MFA Bourita insisted “it is necessary to create conditions for a minimum of guarantees because waiting for ideal conditions to hold these elections could drag on".

For his part, Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives said that the settlement of the Libyan crisis can only be achieved through the organization of elections in time and the election of a President who will strive to achieve reconciliation and unification of Libyan institutions.

Mr. Aguila Saleh stressed that the Libyan House of Representatives "has taken the necessary steps to prepare for these elections through the development of laws governing the election of its members and the head of state, and not dismissing any of the parties," adding that all the constitutional and legal bases are ready to make these elections succeed.

He stressed the importance of the support of the international community and Arab brotherly countries for the holding of Libyan elections, because "the outcome of the crisis, the unification of institutions and the achievement of national reconciliation can be achieved only through the election of a president of all Libyans through the ballot box and within the scheduled deadline".
