Menfi receives Norland in Tripoli, vows to fulfill PC's role towards elections
Muhammad Menfi, Chairman of the Presidential, has reiterated the Council's commitment to fulfilling its role in steering the country towards elections.
Menfi said, "as a neutral party," the PC seeks to advance the country towards parliamentary and presidential elections under a national consensus with a participatory and national reconciliation approach.
Menfi's remarks came during a meeting with US Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, and Chargé d'Affairs, Leslie Ordman, on Thursday.
Over and above the political and military developments, represented in the work of the Joint Military Committee (5 + 5), the meeting discussed financial arrangements, besides resource management and distribution.
Norland began his visit last Tuesday from Benghazi, where he discussed with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aqilah Saleh, the political situation and the planned elections for 2023.
On Wednesday, Norland attended a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah in Tripoli, grouping special envoys and ambassadors of the United States, Britain, France, Germany, and Italy.
Following the meeting, representatives of the US, France, Germany, Italy, and the UK issued a joint statement urging Libyan leaders to make the necessary concessions to hold elections and enable the Libyan people to choose their leadership.
