The permanent representative of Libya to the United Nations, Al-Taher Al-Sunni, called on the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) to obtain a written commitment from all individuals who intend to run for the next Presidential Council and government to adhere to the agreed-upon election date at the end of this year.

Al-Sunni stressed on his Twitter account that varying opinions and vying for positions, although causing disruption, is still the favoured path to peaceful political conflict, rather than military conflict and bloodshed, as he put it.
