Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric addressed Libyan leaders, expressing that they should focus on the interests and future of the Libyan people.
Dujarric emphasized that for Libya to reach unity and solidarity, it is necessary to act in consensus. Similar statements had come the day before from UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq.
Haq pointed out that the recent discord and tension between Libyan institutions has destabilized Libya, similar to the past years.
In addition, Head of the Presidential Council Mohamed al-Menfi met with the European Union (EU) Ambassador to Tripoli, Jose Sadabell, in the capital Tripoli on Tuesday.
In a written statement made by the Presidential Council, it was stated that the Council approaches all institutions at the same distance and that the priority is national reconciliation.
Furthermore, the House of Representatives (HoR), which gathered under the leadership of Aguila Salih during the week, announced the candidates for the interim prime minister and stated that the elections of the new interim government would be held on February 10.
In response to these statements, Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh stated that he would transfer his duties and authority only to one elected by the Libyan people.
