The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Libya Abdoulaye Bathily discussed on Sunday the importance of the fair distribution of Libya's wealth during a meeting with Government of National Unity Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dabaiba. 

"During the meeting, I stressed the need to adopt the best standards of transparency and good governance to ensure a fair distribution of Libyan wealth where all Libyans equally benefit from it," Bathily said in a tweet.

The meeting held in Tripoli also discussed ways to "end the political stalemate and prepare the country for inclusive national elections in 2023," according to the tweets posted by Bathily.

The UN envoy highlighted that it is the responsibility of all actors to establish conditions conducive to holding elections, starting with adopting a solid constitutional framework.

The two also reviewed the government's role in ensuring the security of the elections.

Libya failed to hold general elections in December 2021 as previously scheduled due to disagreements over election laws among the Libyan parties.

Earlier in January, Dabaiba said his government is ready to hold general elections in the year 2023.
