The spokesman for the Chadian Front for Change and Accord, Kingabe Ogouzeimi de Tapol, has expressed his regret that elections were not held in Libya, where there are many Chadian fighters, saying it is “unfortunate”.

In an interview with the Italian Nova Agency, Tapol added that they realize the necessity of returning to Libya, saying “In the past, we were in Libya to fight ISIS, but today we know that we must go back”, stressing that their presence in Libya is not to support any party over another.
