Tunis, 24 August 2015:
Some forty representatives of women’s groups today started a new meeting in Tunis to review . . .[restrict]the Draft Political Accord hammered out last month.
The two-day gathering, organised by UNSMIL at the Acropolis Hotel in the Tunisian capital, comes at a delicate time for the Political Accord, agreed last month in the Moroccan resort of Skirhat but which is still being rejected by the GNC and members of Libya Dawn.
At their last Tunis meeting in April, it was evident that among the women, divisions still ran deep with angry arguments over some provisions in the-then draft accord.
However, all the delegates endorsed the principle that peace could only come through dialogue and that women had a key role in making this happen.
