The Chairman of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Emad Al-Sayeh, said that the political and security environment has improved compared to 2021, and that political consensus between the House of Representatives (HoR) and High Council of State (HCS) would improve the chances of success of the electoral process and end fears of the recurrence of force majeure. 

Al-Sayeh added, in an interview with the Libyan Al-Sabah newspaper, that the HNEC will work closely with the committee concerned with drafting electoral laws to avoid the issue of demanding amendments to laws after they would have been approved by the legislative authority. 

Regarding foreign interference influencing the course of the electoral process, Al-Sayeh said this matter was supported by some intelligence services of countries that do not see an interest in the stability of Libya unless they achieve their goals and objectives that serve their interests, claiming, without any truth to it, the HNEC is infiltrated by some countries, and it determines the course of those elections or who can and cannot run and who does not run. 

Al-Sayeh explained that the HNEC is an independent constitutional institution that does not allow local or international interference and that no party can direct or influence its work, adding that a way out of the political crisis comes only through elections, and that other possible paths will not be in the interest of the future of the country, but rather will reinforce the prevailing division as well as put the country's future at risk.
