The Libyan High National Elections Commission (HNEC) discussed on Saturday with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) more ways of the international community’s support for the Libyan elections scheduled for December 24.

This came during a meeting between HNEC Head, Imad al-Sayeh, and the UNDP Resident Representative in Libya, Marc-Andre Franche, HNEC said in a statement.

The meeting, held at HNEC headquarters in Tripoli, discussed the developments of the electoral process and the operational progress made by the Commission to hold the presidential and parliamentary elections simultaneously, and the accompanying momentum in terms of the interest and aspirations of the international community towards Libya’s stability, the statement explained.

Franche emphasized the renewed support of the international community for the upcoming elections through the People project and the agreements concluded by the project with donor countries to raise HNEC level of readiness to organize the upcoming elections according to the highest professional standards, it added.
