Delegates of Libya’s House of Representatives and High Council of State will hold the upcoming round of their elections talks on June 11 in Cairo, announced the United Nations on Friday.
The delegates, who are part of a UN-backed Joint Committee, have recently ended a week-long “extensive consultations and positive discussions” about constitutional track for holding national elections in the country, according statement by the U.N. Advisor on Libya Stephanie Williams, which she delivered at the end of the last session on Friday.
“I again commend you on the progress made while also you remain conscious of the amount of work that you have left to do here in this period between now and the next session when we will gather on 11 June,” Williams told the delegates in Cairo.
Both sides have reached “initial consensus” on 137 articles of the country’s constitution draft, according to the U.N. diplomat.
