GENEVA – United Nations Special Envoy for Libya and international partners urge Libyan actors including members of Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) to expeditiously establish the constitutional basis for elections, said UNSMIL (United Nations Support Mission in Libya).

In the context of the ongoing meeting of the LPDF in Switzerland, the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Libya, and Head of UNSMIL, Jan Kubis, held consultations with representatives of France, Germany, Italy, UK, and US , following telephone conversations in the previous days with some other international partners including Russia and Morocco and Libyan high-level representatives to discuss progress made so far towards the implementation of the LPDF Roadmap.

The consultations came in line with the Berlin II Conference Conclusions and the UN Security Council Resolution 2570, including the need to have an agreed constitutional base as soon as possible to enable holding the national elections on 24 December 2021, UNSMIL stated on Tuesday.
