London, 5 May 2021:
UNSMIL reported yesterday that its head, Jan Kubis, transmitted on the same day to the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) plenary, the draft proposal for the constitutional basis for elections, as finalized these by the LPDF’s Legal Committee, following their meeting in Tunis from 7-9 April.
Kubis thanked the members of the Legal Committee, in particular the Drafting Team and the Rapporteurs for their excellent work and accomplishment.
UNSMIL reported that Kubis will convene a virtual plenary session of the LPDF soon after the Eid holiday, for the LPDF to discuss and deliberate on the Legal Committee proposal.
Reiterating the UN’s full commitment to the holding of national elections on 24 December, Kubis called on LPDF members to be guided in their discussions by a spirit of compromise and to place the interests of their fellow Libyans and future generations above all considerations.
