RABAT, 2 February 2021 – Morocco is getting praised for its role in hosting several inter-Libyan meetings in recent months aimed at restoring peace to Libya.

The most recent high-level meetings on Libya hosted by Morocco include one with delegations from the Tripo-based High Council of State and the Tobruk-based House of Representatives.

Morocco is also being praised for its neutrality in the crisis, according to a recent statement by a member of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives in Libya.

“The distinguished, central, and clear position of the kingdom helped the Libyan parties to reach a political agreement at the end of the Skhirat talks, sponsored by Morocco for a year,” said Mohammed al-Raid.

The Libyan member of parliament was part of the last round of inter-Libyan dialogue held last month in Bouznika, Morocco.

Libyan political and military groups are trying to form a consensus transition government that will manage the affairs of the state ahead of elections scheduled for December 2021.

Meetings held last September, October and November led to the signing of comprehensive agreements on how to fill positions of sovereignty in the transitional government.

The inter-Libyan talks are hoping to reach consensus in filling many positions, including the posts of Central Bank Governor, President of Administrative Control Authority, President of the National Authority for the Fight against Corruption, President and members of the High Electoral Commission, Attorney General and President of the Supreme Court.
