London, 21 January 2021:
UNSMIL yesterday commended the House of Representatives (HoR) and High State Council (HSC) joint Constitutional Committee ‘‘on their decision to meet within the framework of the Roadmap agreed by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) and for their pledge to consult closely with the High National Elections Commission (HNEC) moving forward’’.
It said it appreciates the ‘‘declared commitment of the Committee to hold national elections on 24 December in response to the overwhelming demand of the Libyan people to renew the democratic legitimacy of their institutions via the ballot box.
UNSMIL said it will continue to engage with all relevant stakeholders to support the electoral process leading to a democratic and stable Libya.
