Libya – The head of the Republican Coalition Party and political analyst Ezzedine Aqeel said that the reason for the failure to resolve the elections crisis lies in the road map that emerged from the political dialogue forum sponsored by the United Nations between the parties to the conflict, and produced a government whose term has expired and is still in power, and approved the holding of elections on December 24 last It also failed because of the controversy and the circumstances surrounding the country.
Aqeel, in an interview with Al-Ain news website, saw that the methodology for resolving the crisis completely departed from the nature of the essential solution or the effective methodology that was used successfully by dozens of countries that passed the model of the state of armed conflict and enabled them to restore their peace and stability, pointing out that solving the crisis of the Libyan case model had to be It is based on two main treatments.
He explained that effective treatments depend on two factors, the first is providing international technical support and exerting maximum international pressure on the ruling class that clings to power until death to force it to make a common constitutional base that obliges them to implement procedures to renew political legitimacy for others. The second is to end the main driver of the crisis, which is the security threat. By choosing between imposing one of two models, the first is violent rogue disarmament, as happened in Sri Lanka, Rwanda, and eastern Libya, or peaceful disarmament, as happened in Lebanon, the Balkans, Sierra Leone, Colombia and many other models.
Aqeel considered that the neglect of that map of the essential role of the parties to the conflict in peacemaking led to the continuation of violence, the violation of the armistice and the exacerbation of the presence of mercenaries, which recently turned into a national disaster.
He stressed that this problem can only end with the end and disappearance of the local militias completely, because the militias are able to return the mercenaries as soon as they need their services again, even if their exit from the country is actually achieved.
Among the problems that lead to the failure of the Libyan elections, Aqeel also saw the creation of a failed and sterile security path that allowed the continuation of violence and the plurality of breaching the truce, and the cease-fire repeatedly and severe, because they consider the breach only as an attack of one region over another, while they do not consider wars within the same region as a breach of the armistice, as it is permissible.
He also added that “the absence of economic arms for the militias outside the country allows for pressure on the parties to the conflict to adjust their positions and tighten control over their actions.”
Aqeel also spoke about the direct external reasons for the failure of the elections, saying: “The first is the absence of the international will until this moment about helping Libya restore its stability due to the continuing foreign struggle for dominance over it and seizing its resources.”
He explained that this is what generated the continuing vital need for the major Western powers to control the Libyan political decision by ensuring the continuation of chaos and the absence of sovereignty.
As for the organizational reasons for the failure and collapse of the elections, Aqeel attributed them to the international community’s deliberate absence of the parties to the conflict from awareness of the vital concept of the new, unifying state.
He stressed that this was the reason for mobilizing the militias that fell into the midst of the elections with the aim of imposing the exclusive presence of the political scene on the people and groups controlling the failed state model that has existed since 2011, by trying to force the participation of individuals and extremist and regional groups only in the elections, which led to its failure.
According to Aqil, the absence of a constitutional rule that reflects the consensus of the parties to the conflict, which one of the parties should not have drafted the electoral literature on its own, according to the long international history of mechanisms for resolving conflicts in armed conflict countries, in addition to “issuing tens of thousands of electoral cards for the dead, the bedridden and the mentally incapacitated, and the lack of Certainty about the parties to the conflict’s recognition of the election results and the absence of security guarantees for the implementation of a free and fair electoral process.
Akil also considered that among the reasons for the failure of the Libyan elections was the shocking documentary fraud, in addition to overthrowing the principle of equal opportunities by implicating public money in financing propaganda campaigns that harmed the country’s economy.
Aqeel continued his speech: “There is also the hostile popular attitude towards political parties, which has allowed for an increase in the complexity of foreign interventions in light of the acute absence of professional and popularly accepted political leaders, and the emergence of the threat of consequences arising from this hostility even if a new parliament is elected according to the current electoral rule.”
Ezz El-Din also saw that his country’s political future is based entirely on uncertainty and uncertainty, which Parliament, in turn, defends strongly and firmly.
He held the international community responsible for this failure for displaying an unfortunate failure to help the two parties overcome this challenge, and for forcibly and deliberately sabotaging the solution reached by the two parties in this regard.
Ezz El-Din Aqeel questioned the extent to which the international community, specifically Western governments, could intervene to force the parties to the conflict to enter any future elections.
He continued: “Are we witnessing upcoming elections based on the exclusion of certain political or social forces, because this suits Western interests in Libya, to find ourselves in front of a new electoral collapse due to the country’s regression to the square of rupture, alignment and violence?”
Aqil continued his questions about the possibility of succeeding in purifying the electoral register and the records of presidential and parliamentary candidates, which are full of fraud and corruption, or the rehabilitation of voter cards in light of the continuation of the current security situation and the horrific penetration of extremist groups against sectors and state institutions.
Aqeel ruled out the possibility of reaching a constitutional base in light of the insistence of the Brotherhood and the regional states that support the organization to continue the policy of exclusion and isolation and vacate the electoral stage exclusively for them to ensure their continued control of the chair of the president and perhaps parliament.
