The Italian Minister of Interior, Luciana Lamorgese, said that holding elections in Libya as scheduled on December 24 would appear to be a difficult task to achieve, however, holding them in January may be a better option for Libya.

Lamorgese made the remarks whilst participating in a reception organized by Il Foglio newspaper, according to the Nova news agency.

Her remarks come approximately two days following the Italian Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, stressed the relevance of ensuring free and inclusive presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya on December 24, along with the mention of the priority of the removal of all mercenaries and foreign fighters from the Libyan soil completely.
