The UN envoy to Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, has confirmed that there is an increasing convergence of views that elections in Libya should take place in 2023.

“Ahead of my departure for the Security Council briefing in New York, I consulted with Libyan leaders including the head of the Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Agilah Saleh, the head of the High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mishri, Khalifa Haftar, and a delegation representing the Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, Bathily tweeted.

“I welcome the commitment of all towards finding a Libyan-led solution to the political crisis. We must all work together to end the current impasse and meet the aspirations of Libyan people”, he added.
