LPDF to vote on election framework proposals after bridging committee fails to reach compromise

LPDF to vote on election framework proposals after bridging committee fails to reach compromise

The Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) will view four proposals for the constitutional basis of the December elections before ultimately making a decision on choosing one, announced the U.N. Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) on Tuesday.

This comes after the LPDF Proposal Bridging Committee failed to reach a compromise on a single proposal.

“The Committee agreed on a mechanism for the anticipated LPDF vote on proposal/s. The recommended voting mechanism will be submitted – along with the proposals – to the LDFP plenary,” UNSMIL said in a statement.

The bridging committee is the fourth LPDF committee to fail in reaching consensus for the constitutional basis.
