Obstacles threatening to “fail” – Erm News


Many Libyans have expressed their dissatisfaction with the names on the final list announced by the UN mission for the participants in the Libyan political dialogue, amid talk of “obstacles” that threaten to fail those consultations.

The UN envoy announced to Libya Acting Stephanie Williams, in a statement published by the UN mission to Libya on its official website, Sunday, that the first meeting will be on October 26, through the visual communication mechanism, while the direct meeting will start on November 9, in the Tunisian capital.

The mission invited 75 participants and participants from Libya “representing all political and social spectrum of the Libyan society to participate in the first meeting of the comprehensive Libyan political forum through the visual communication mechanism.”

Activists and local news sites circulated, The final list of the names of the participants in the forum To be resided in Tunisia.


However, several Libyan personalities and different currents refused to participate in the upcoming dialogue.

Zaidan Maatouq Al-Zadma, one of those named on the UN mission’s list of participants in the dialogue, announced his withdrawal from it.

Al-Zadmeh said in a post he posted on his Facebook account, that his decision came due to “the presence of personalities belonging to the Brotherhood movement, in addition to some controversial personalities that have been the cause of the suffering of Libyans over the past years,” he said.

He affirmed, “his adherence to constants, the most important of which is support for the Libyan army in its war against terrorism, ending the militia’s control of political and financial decisions in Tripoli, as well as expelling foreign mercenaries from Libya.”

For its part, the Libyan National People’s Movement condemned the list of participants selected by the United Nations Mission for Political Dialogue.

According to a statement by the movement’s spokesperson, Tamer Saeed, the list “included a large group of the Brotherhood, extremist elements, and foreign nationalities who participated in the destruction and sabotage of Libya during the past decade,” he said.

Said added in a statement today, Sunday, that “the terms of reference granted to the Dialogue Committee appointed by unknown parties represent a serious violation of the will The Libyan peopleAnd foretells the continuation of the crisis ”.



Political analysts believe that there are many obstacles to implementing an agreement that all Libyans are satisfied with, starting with the division of ministerial portfolios, through the nature of the tasks of the new Presidency Council, as well as consensus on the occupants of these positions.

According to observers, limiting the meetings between representatives of the House of Representatives and the State Council “was more beneficial than expanding the circle of participation,” explaining that “the participation of currents that do not constitute any value on the Libyan ground, which increases the severity of the problem and reinforces differences.”

Political analyst Omar Bou Saida believes that “the best evidence for the existence of sharp differences occurred during the Montreux Swiss meetings that lasted for 3 days during the past week and ended on Friday.”

Bou Saida said in a statement to “Erm News” that “the participation of entities and personalities representing parties and currents that have no political value inside Libya,” the talks will be held because these entities are not satisfied with any solution but a solution that makes them a party in the administration of the state.

He indicated that “the participation of figures from the Brotherhood’s current, as well as their political arm, the Justice and Construction Party, makes the dialogue suspicious for the Libyans, as the Brotherhood and its party cannot accept the existence of a state that does not believe in their faith.”


In the same context, Salih Abu Khashim, who is interested in public affairs, pointed out that “the participation of the federal bloc with personalities that have not been announced, nor about the way they were chosen, raises doubts about the nature of the representatives of this movement, whose representatives are in the majority in the region of Cyrenaica, eastern Libya.”

Abu Khushaim said in a statement to “Erm News” that “the existence of a current called Saif al-Islam Movement as a representative of the former regime group, is not supported by the supporters of the former ruling movement, because not all the personalities of this trend have been contacted.

He pointed out that “the presence of representatives of cities such as Misurata and Al-Zawiya made the rest of the Libyan cities consider this a disregard for them, and the presence of a representative of the leader of one of the militias, Osama al-Juwaili, as well as a representative of Fathi Bashagha gives a majority to the Western Libyan current in front of the east, as well as the army leadership that was not represented in these meetings “.
