LIBYA: The deputies of the governments of East and West say “no” to the division


The consensus was not obvious, it took five days of negotiations on Moroccan soil to reach an agreement between the representatives of the Libyan people divided into two governments since the forced death of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. For the first time since the beginning of the crisis, both sides want to move towards parliamentary elections as quickly as possible.

The parliamentarians of the governments of East and West have decided to make peace and to go towards a calm of tensions. On Saturday 28 November 2020, the deputies of the House of Representatives unanimously decided to put an end to the division” and to “stop hate speech”. They agreed to bring together the legislative body of the country divided between the forces of Marshal Khalifa Haftar based in Tobruk in the east of the country and the National Union Government of Fayez al-sarraj recognized by the international community and whose power is based in the capital, Tripoli.

New talks led by Morocco on 30 November 2020 between the leaders of the Council of State (upper chamber of the parliament) and the House of Representatives should make it possible to move in the direction of holding “legislative elections and completing the transition phase”.

Already in October, a permanent ceasefire agreement was signed between the two parties, a good omen for the national elections scheduled for December 2021.
