On Friday, Libyan parties voted for a new prime minister and a new presidency council.
As the 10th anniversary of the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi's government (1970-2011) approaches, Libya faces a real chance for restoring political stability, especially with the recent creation of a new executive authority.
The fate of the armed groups, their dismantling, and reintegration remain suspended. Also, the fate of the unification of the country's national army has not been resolved yet, they pointed out.
"The country witnessed political chaos and continuous struggle for power, along with the deterioration of the security situation and the expansion of terrorism over the past few years," said Miloud Al-Hajj, a Libyan law professor.
In Oct. 2020, however, Libyan parties signed a permanent cease-fire agreement that ended the armed conflict between the eastern-based army and the UN-backed government based in Tripoli.
Nearly three months ago, the LPDF members agreed to hold general elections in the country on Dec. 24, 2021.
