The Egyptian capital, Cairo, will host a tripartite meeting for the Heads of the Presidential Council and High Council of State, Mohammed Menfi and Mohammed Takala and the Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aqylah Saleh, according to what Bawabat Al-Wasat website reported, citing the Second Deputy Chairman of the High Council of State, Omar Al-Obeidi.

Al-Obeidi said on Saturday that the meeting will be held on Sunday and it comes at the official invitation of the Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

The anticipated meeting comes as UN envoy Abdoulaye Bathily's initiative to end the current political impasse has stalled.

In November, Bathily called on the leaders of the five main parties in Libya to hold a meeting to discuss the next steps for the electoral process, after the House of Representatives had issued the laws for electing the head of state and the National Assembly in October 2023.

The five main parties named by Bathily were Menfi, Saleh, Takala, and the Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah and Khalifa Haftar. As the UN initiative continues to falter, the US special envoy to Libya, Ambassador, Richard Norland,  has supported the formation of a “caretaker government” as a solution to the political crisis in the country.
