Members of the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HCS) called on all political, social and security actors in Libya to shoulder responsibility and work with them to unify state institutions and achieve stability in order to hold parliamentary and presidential elections this year.

These remarks came in a joint statement of the two chambers, following a meeting held on Wednesday in Tripoli that was attended by the First Deputy Speaker of the HoR, Fawzi Al-Nuwairi, and the First Deputy Head of the HCS, Naji Mukhtar.

The attendees emphasized that the responsibility is a shared one and that the current period requires national partnership, saying that no party can unilaterally lead the country in political, economic or security decisions, reiterating that the work must be done through institutions.

The two chambers called on the United Nations, as the broker of the political process in Libya, to exercise its role in stopping regional and international interference that entangles the political process in Libya, and to support Libyan-Libyan solutions, according to the statement.

The statement stressed the continuation and expansion of meetings between the members of the two chambers until a specific roadmap with a specific timeline is formulated to achieve the desired goals.
