Ordinary Libyans are becoming frustrated, against the background of repeated delays of the legislative elections in their country and the failure of concerned agencies to specify a date for these elections.
This, some people fear, opens the door for a renewed wave of instability in a country that has had more than its own share of this instability.
This comes as ordinary Libyans seem to have completely lost confidence in the electoral process.
The American site, Conversion, ran a report recently, in which it said Libyan officials admitted that the polls could not be held on December 24, 2021 as scheduled, due to legal, logistical and security issues.
The polls were then rescheduled for a month later, it added.
The site noted that United Nations mediators now try to build consensus on holding elections in June this year.
It warned against a continued struggle in Libya in case the elections were postponed until December this year.
This postponement will likely make conflicts in Libya seep out of the streets and into Libyan institutions, the Conversion warned.
Libya’s civil war broke out in 2014 in the wake of divisive elections that failed to bring in the aspired new interim authority.
This would have been the first authority to be formed in the North African country following the 2011 ousting of longstanding Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
The political, economic and security challenges facing those managing Libya’s transition have spread already assumed an international proportion, with terrorism taking root in the country, particularly in eastern Libya.
This comes as militias of all types want to control Libyan state assets and institutions.
The Conversion said ambiguity keeps growing around the presidential elections due to the controversy that surrounds the main candidates, especially as Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.
