The UN reiterates its call on Libya to hold elections,

The UN Special Adviser to Libya, Stephanie Williams, reiterated her call on Libyans to focus on the electoral process and maintain peace amid rising concerns for the country’s future on Sunday.

Last week, during a meeting with Libyan senior politicians, she highlighted the need for free and fair elections in Libya “in the shortest possible time”.

“I stressed the need for the various Libyan political forces to strive for the broadest possible consensus, through an inclusive and transparent process,” Williams said on Twitter.

On Friday, Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Mohammed Dbeibah said he would announce his roadmap for the June elections in two days.

Libya’s general election was scheduled for December 24 last year, but differences between Libyan political groups hindered opinion polls.

Libyans hope that an election will help put an end to the armed conflict that has plagued the oil-rich country for years.
