The High National Elections Commission (HNEC) in Libya announced in its official statement on December 22 that they have undertaken the task of holding a fair and transparent election in order to ensure the peaceful transition of the government in Libya.
In the written statement, it was suggested that the elections be postponed to January 24, 2022, in coordination with the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR).
In addition to this, HNEC President Emad al-Sayeh, in a statement on Monday, stated that the election committees across the country were dissolved and that he presented their report for 2021 to the parliament.
Al-Sayeh also announced that the postponement of the elections is within the jurisdiction of the HoR.
While the election debates continued in Libya, Prime Minister and presidential candidate Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh made some statements regarding latest issues.
Dbeibeh expressed that the elections should consist of three phases. Accordingly, Dbeibeh stated that the first stage is a constitution that will guide the Libyan people, the second stage is an electoral law that will support fair and free elections, and the final stage is the acceptance of the election results, adding that it is a big mistake to prepare for the elections without the first two stages.
