Demand for Approving the Constitutional Rule for the Presidential
and Parliamentary General Elections on December 24, 2021

While announcing the start of our field movement across various cities all over Libya, we affirm that every 24th day of the month is a date to reaffirm our right to restore the national legitimacy and end the state of isolated islands. We also stress that this movement is not associated with any currents, or ideologies, or persons, but is a pan-Libya civil and peaceful movement, led by the youth of Libya, who believe in peace, and defenders of the values of unity, civic state, and democratization path, and as we announce our movement, we reaffirm the following:

(1) We, hereby, affirm our absolute rejection of the attempts to impede, with roadblocks, the Preparatory Phase of a Comprehensive Solution through creating excuses; foremost among which is the attempt to unjustifiably interpolate a referendum on a draft constitution in the elections’ entitlement.

(2) We urge the High National Election Commission (HNEC) to immediately embark on cancelling the previous electoral records, and start the process of re-registration of voters, according to a new mechanism based on identification cards as a complementary measure, and we also call on the HNEC to reduce the number of horizontal polling stations.

(3) We hold the United Nations Support Mission to Libya (UNSMIL) responsible for obstructing the legal track related to the approval of the Constitutional Rule.

(4) We draw the attention of the members of the Libyan House of Representatives that they have exceeded their legal tenure, and call on the chairmanship of the House of Representatives to include the discussion of the Constitutional Rule in the upcoming sessions of the Libyan House of Representatives, and to be broadcasted live in accordance with Article No.10 of the Seventh Amendment to the Constitutional Declaration.

In conclusion, as we issue this statement, we affirm that we will not give up our natural right to demand that the Presidential and Parliamentary elections be held on time, and that the Libyan House of Representatives must expedite the implementation of the Roadmap that is urgently required.

May Peace, Mercy, and Blessings of God be upon you,

Issued on March 24, 2021
