Tripoli, 07 March 2021 - The UN Secretary-General Special Envoy for Libya and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) Ján Kubiš stresses the importance of holding the House of Representatives session on Monday, 8 March, which is the first since several years.

The Special Envoy emphasises that this session, which was called for by the HoR Speaker, Agila Saleh to thoroughly discuss and eventually consider a vote of confidence to the cabinet line-up proposed by Prime-Minister designate Abdelhamid AlDabaiba, is another important step towards restoring the unity and legitimacy of Libya’s institutions and authorities, in order to achieve the unity, sovereignty, and stability of Libya. These efforts must not be derailed under any pretext, including through the circulation of fake news, such as the text message circulated today about UN investigation of bribery allegations.
