Tunis, 10 May 2017:
The African Union’s envoy to Libya has called on the State Council and House of Representatives (HoR) to put aside their differences and meet at the negotiating table so that change to the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) can be agreed and implemented.
Jakaya Kikwete, former president of Tanzania, told State Council president Abdulrahman Sewehli that it was important the Libyan Dialogue went ahead in conjunction with the HoR so the necessary amendments to the LPA could be made.
In a tweet Kikwete said: “I observed a return to normalcy. Life goes on. I urged leaders to stay a course and sustain peace.”
A State Council statement said the two looked at Libya’s current situation and how the AU could bring together Libya’s various parties within the framework of LPA to ensure peace.
Kikwete also held talks with Presidency Council head Faiez Serraj who applauded the role the AU has taken in the political reconciliation progress.
Serraj stressed that there could be “no alternative to consensus and acceptance of each other”, adding his government would do all it could to bring about the rebuilding of Libya.
