The UN envoy Abdoulaye Bathily has  renewed his call for Libyan leaders to prioritize the needs of their people above all else, come together, engage in a constructive dialogue, and make the promise of elections a reality.

Bathily said in a congratulatory message to the Libyan people on the occasion of the new year, "May 2024 be the year the voices of the Libyan people are heard, demands honored, and aspirations fulfilled”.

On this new year, I extend my best wishes to all people in Libya. The yearning for lasting peace, unity, and prosperity resonates deeply in every Libyan heart, he added, calling for seizing the opportunity to unite, build trust, and pave the way for a brighter future for all Libyans.
