The Libyan National Army of eastern commander Khalifa Haftar announced Saturday “a final opportunity” to draw up a road map for elections in the country.
The announcement comes one year after the rival factions agreed to hold the polls.
General Khalifa Haftar addressed Libyans in the second-largest city of Benghazi, home to his forces, on the 71st anniversary of Libya’s independence.
After a 2020 ceasefire, the rival eastern and western sides agreed to hold elections on Dec. 24, 2021 and installed a new unity government that was meant to reunify the divided national institutions but the process fell apart.
