Libya's ambassador to the United Nations, Taher El Sonni, said in a statement at the Security Council's session on Libya on Monday that "Libyans see the dream of elections evaporating again," adding that the dialogues on electoral laws were supposed to end this month, referring to the work of the 6+6 committee, and explaining that there are many countries which interfere in Libyan affairs "using Libyan ownership of the political solution for political consumption."

El Sonni stressed the need to address the controversial points in the outcomes of the 6+6 committee with the "Libyan national forces," calling for setting a timetable for holding presidential and parliamentary elections, and avoiding previous experiences by creating new tracks and new transitional stages, which he considered upsetting to some Libyan parties - apparently referring to the intention to form a new government to oversee the electoral process.

"We urge work to set a timetable for holding presidential and parliamentary elections and to create new paths away from previous experiences that proved ineffective. Regarding the freezing of Libyan funds, its circumstances are known to everyone, but the issue has been politicized over the past years, and the funds have lessened, as some countries have benefited from the freezing of assets. We want freedom to manage our money ourselves, even if it is frozen." El Sonni said.

He also called on the Lebanese government to release Hannibal Gaddafi, saying Libya hopes to find a solution to this crisis, thanking the United Nations for its response to the Government of National Unity by sending a delegation to discuss the needs for holding elections at the request of the government.
