The head of Libya’s High National Electoral Commission (HNEC) ordered the dissolution of election commissions across the country, practically postponing the country’s presidential elections scheduled to be held on December 24th.
A leaked document by Imad al-Sayeh dated December 20th refers to the “dissolution of electoral regional and local offices and committees”. A member of HNEC’s administrative council on Tuesday confirmed the authenticity of the document.
Libyan President Mohamed Menfi, who was yesterday in Cairo for a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, has not yet made a statement.
There has been intense turmoil in Libya in recent weeks in the run-up to the elections, with participants denouncing each other’s candidacy and there has been ambiguity until the last minute about the final list of candidates.
Due to the current situation, there have been rumours of the postponement of the elections, but were not confirmed, despite this, after the latest developments, an official announcement is expected to confirm or deny the postponement.
