Libya: Why the meetings of the constitutional track in Cairo under the auspices of the United Nations

The meetings of the Libyan constitutional track, hosted by Cairo, continue in a positive atmosphere, and the participants’ keenness to consult to ensure the national interest with the participation of the Libyan members of the House of Representatives and the State Council. Egypt has always been keen to provide all support to the Libyan people to achieve good, peace and stability.

The House of Representatives and the Libyan "Supreme State" in Cairo confirmed several controversial points, to agree on the form of the constitutional basis for holding the expected presidential and parliamentary elections. As Stephanie Williams, Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General in Libya confirmed that consultations are continuing between the two councils in the Egyptian capital to agree on the constitutional path, based on which the stability of the country will take place.

A member of the House of Representatives, participating in the Cairo meetings, said that the conferees were “discussing all the different points about the draft constitution, which was previously prepared by its constituent body in 2017 to find out the articles that need to be amended, by the committee formed by Parliament for this purpose.” And that these constitutional articles are not in line with international laws, and they need to be amended by international committees.

We find that the consultations take place in a consensual atmosphere between the two parties, where it was agreed on several points on the constitutional path and how to treat them. We find that the meetings take place between the two delegations without interference from any party and that there are no recommendations by the UN mission or the Egyptian state regarding a new government.

Rumors spread in Libya about an agreement in Cairo to make amendments to the government of Fathi Bashagha, so that the number of its ministers would be reduced to facilitate its entry into Tripoli, the capital, to carry out its duties, while Mohamed Al-Hadi, a member of the Libyan State Council Committee, explained that the meetings of the two delegations were devoted to discussing points of contention between the two chambers regarding the constitutional amendment. Twelfth, the UN advisory affirmed that elections are held on a constitutional basis and that the failure to hold elections aims to deprive the people of achieving their will, and that the members are seeking to achieve political gains at the expense of the Libyan people's right to stability.

Libya will continue to suffer from an ongoing struggle for power between a government headed by Abdel Hamid Dabaiba, and Fathi Bashagha, Prime Minister, and the security tension in the capital will continue.

The capital is witnessing intense armed movements south of Tripoli, and these battalions belong to several armed groups from the city of Zintan and Al-Zawiya. The Libyan capital is witnessing the closure of several streets, including Nawahi al Arba, Tripoli, Zawiyat and Al Dahmani, amid the spread of several military vehicles.
