London, 4 January 2021:

Acting UNSMIL head, Stephanie Williams, announced Saturday (2 January) the establishment of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum’s (LPDF) Advisory Committee. Williams said she was grateful to the LPDF members for their active and constructive participation.

UNSMIL revealed that it had received a total of 28 nominations from the LPDF and commended the enthusiasm demonstrated by the LPDF members in the nomination process.

UNSMIL reported that in line with the LPDF’s core principle of inclusivity, it has expanded the membership of the Advisory Committee to 18 members to ensure broad geographical and political diversity as well as the participation of women, youth, and cultural components.

It explained that the Committee’s mandate will be strictly time-bound and its main mission shall be to discuss outstanding issues related to the selection of a unified executive and to put forward concrete and practical recommendations upon which the plenary shall decide.
