For the UN special representative for Libya, most actors are determined to go to the elections. Moreover, a majority of Libyans have registered to vote. "We must create the conditions so that the electoral issue does not remain in the hands of this blocking minority," said Abdoulaye Bathily.

Regarding the accusations of interference by both chambers - the House of Representatives and the High Council of State - the UN special representative assures that there is none and calls for political, moral and legal responsibility.

Abdoulaye Bathily said that, in the current state of Libya, it is not acceptable for candidates to be excluded from the presidential election. According to him, it is necessary to create the conditions for the electoral question to overcome the internal rivalries in these two chambers.
