December 2021 elections only solution to Libya’s crisis
For his part, Amari Zayed reiterated his support for the holding of elections in December this year, with all parties committed to their results, stressing that holding the elections is the beginning of the solution in Libya and ending the division, and that any action other than the elections is only a prolongation of the crisis.
