Holding a fair election... And politicians want to beautify the situation in Libya!

Holding a fair election... And politicians want to beautify the situation in Libya!

The preparations of Libyan politicians do not seem to be running in the next presidential and parliamentary elections, and the re-idea of the upcoming Libyan elections after obtaining a vision and a real work program for Libya from its current crises.

The Minister of the Interior, Commissioner of the National Reconciliation Government, Brigadier Abdulsalam Ashour, stressed the importance of speeding up the resolution of strategic issues related to spatial development in the countries exporting illegal immigration and unifying the international community's vision of the Libyan file.

The idea is originally exposed to Libya by Italy through its ambassador in Libya, which sees Italy, as a country that has a political and economic influence over Libya, not rushing to hold the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections without guarantees of reconciliation between the conflicting political parties.

But UN envoy Ghassan Salameh remains committed to UN resolutions by holding fair presidential and parliamentary elections before the end of this year, along with France's roadmap, which for its part embraced a conference in which Libyan national forces competed for power.

Today we are counting down from the last months of this year with the demand of the international community, especially members of the Security Council, the African Union, the European Union and the League of Arab States, to support the Libyan people to run through the ballot box and to manage the collapsed Libyan state.

What are facing Libya right now are a catastrophic, multifaceted, human misery, political corruption, urban destruction and economic ruins.

It is impossible to wait for many successive incidents, regional and international conflicts in Libya and the disastrous situation of the Libyan people.

The real problem is not in the upcoming elections, which we demand to speed up! But the real problem is in the great dangers waiting to reach the Libyan people after the presidential and parliamentary elections when there are no legitimate constitutional to govern work of the three legislative, Judicial, and executive authorities.

It is clear that the rapid electoral process, which is not regulated by the law of the electoral system emanating from the permanent Libyan constitution, helps the brute force and corrupt money of gangs of obscurantist to influence continue in the corruption and ruin of the Libyan state.

We always say through our articles that the difference in the way we think is about democratic work, the strategy of the conflict between the external and internal forces, between external interests and the national interest between the interests of Libya and the interests of neighboring countries of Libya.

The voice of the Libyan people must be allowed to express its opinion in the conduct of its affairs through fair and transparent elections and protected by the permanent Libyan national constitution, as were the people of Libya in the old time had a constitution of the year fifty-one from the United Nations.

Who bears responsibility for the collapse of the constitutional Libyan state? A question we draw from the Libyan people who see the events in Libya is not going as it should be as in the developed countries, democratically, politically, socially and economically!

Those who want to block progress in Libya are the same ones who are doing the same mistakes in Libya today, which took seven years on Libya.

We do not have the courage to tell them that your political powers are over, and the new elections are under its way within the boundary of the Libyan national constitution.

Poverty is increasing in Libya, and the measures that must be taken to reduce poverty have not been seen. However, the colonialism is not borne by foreign countries as much as by the Libyan people suffer from a decline in the economies of the Libyan state and redistribution of wealth to the general Libyan people.

Libya is going through financial turmoil and divisions in its sovereign institutions and the rivalry between the conflicting political poles on the Libyan authority.

The Regional and international disputes that make Libya an easy target for Arab and foreign ambitions in the Libyan state towards their own interests and not in the interests of the Libyan people.

Libya has been destabilized by many foreign countries, which today play the role of duplication of work between the critic and the participant in the work of political campaigns on Libya.

The involvement of Libyan politicians in financial corruption does not alleviate the impact of sanctions on Libyan funds frozen in international banks due to the UN Security Council resolution 2009, which ask for national interests, human rights and adherence to previous charters.

The situation in Libya has not yet improved from the stability in the Libyan state and the equal and full participation of women and minorities in the political process, the absence of reconciliation and national unity, and the call of all Libyans to adhere to their beliefs and refrain from acts of revenge.

Armed action, Libyan armed militias, and terrorism in Libya are still widespread, and some blame the eastern region for directly accusing Marshal Khalifa Hafer of involvement in the liquidation of the rivalry of terrorist groups.

An increase in tension, will not prepare for the progress on the concessions between the eastern and western regions.

Which in turn, Libya will not continue to depend on the division of sovereign, political, financial and banking bodies between the West and the East.

We realize that Libya could actually be divided into two states, the East and West, and two governments, the National Reconciliation Government in the Libyan capital and the interim government in the Libyan east.

The level of challenge was not sufficient to face the difficulties and obstacles facing Libya, but the catastrophic record of Libya, show a political issue of the United Nations to adopt the idea of tutelage Libya once again!

Reform programs that were largely devoid of the proposals of the National Accord government, proposals that did not apply on the ground because those who put these reforms buried their head in the sand and do not look at the public image that has bankrupt the country from corruption and embezzlement and looting of public funds.

We have pressure on the governments in Libya and our pressure paper us to refer to the Libyan constitutional rule of law that sets the course of governments and makes their thinking in the constitutional framework in the issue of alliance with the East, West, North, and South.
