August 30, 2023

Presidential candidate and Chairman of the Ihya Libya Movement, Dr Aref Nayed, held a video call today with the French President Emmanuel Macrons Special Advisor and his Envoy to Libya, H.E. Paul Soler.

Dr. Nayed said in the meeting that he fully supports the 6+6 Committee in their efforts to urgently complete the election laws. He also stressed the need to start implementing the procedures for forming the new executive authority, immediately after the issuance of outputs of the 6+6 Committee, and allowing applications for candidacy to head a new caretaker government, whose work will focus on preparing and implementing simultaneous, urgent, and fair Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

The French special envoy reiterated France’s support for the sovereignty, unity and stability of Libya, the end of foreign interference, and its full support for the efforts of the 6+6 Committee towards issuing the electoral laws. He also expressed support for the last statement by H.E. Abdoulaye Bathily, the UN Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), which called for an elections-preparation government, as well as Presidential and Parliamentary Elections as soon as possible.
