LPDF Proposals Bridging Committee resumes discussions on constitutional basis for elections

Upon the request of members of the Proposals Bridging Committee of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) facilitated on Thursday a virtual meeting of the Committee to continue the efforts to find common ground and complete the development of a constitutional basis that will enable the holding of national elections on 24 December 2021 in line with the LPDF roadmap, according to UNSMIL.

“The meeting took place in a cordial atmosphere, with the Committee resuming the negotiations it had started in Geneva two weeks ago.  Members of the Committee agreed to continue their work immediately after the Eid Al-Adha holidays, focusing on reaching an agreement on a draft constitutional basis that will be submitted to the LPDF plenary,” UNSMIL said in a statement.

Eid Al-Adha holiday usually takes four days; starting, this year, from Monday, July 19.
