Former acting UN envoy to Libya commends role of women in LPDF

Former acting UN envoy to Libya commends role of women in LPDF

Stephanie Williams, the former acting U.N. envoy to Libya, praised on Sunday the role of female members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) in “taking principled positions, calling for the required change, justice, accountability and reconciliation in Libya”.

“Their voices should be raised, not silenced. They are an integral part of a broader movement across the region challenging the old, corrupt, reactionary dinosaurs and the forces of the status quo,” Williams tweeted.

“If it were not for you, the solution would not have moved an inch,” the U.N. diplomat added “Don’t let them assassinate hope now”.
