The UN special envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame said the possibility of passing amendments to the political agreement has become “insignificant.”
In his briefing to the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Salame said that “these interim amendments are getting less important as elections approach,” affirming he is beginning in a “new and final” attempt to form these amendments.
Salame said the amendment of the political agreement is one aspect of the plan of action, adding that “it may be useful to appoint a new executive authority chosen in a public manner to strengthen the government’s ability to serve the country during the limited transition period.”
Salama pointed out that the referendum law on the constitution “is witnessing heated debate,” noting that some segments are not satisfied with the content of the constitution draft, stressing their priority now is to work toward holding “fair and free” elections before the end of this year.
In September last year, Ghassan Salame presented his plan of action in Libya, which includes amending the Libyan political agreement and holding a national conference under the auspices of the United Nations.
