UN Special Adviser on Libya, Stephanie Williams, met in Tunis Saturday with Yael Lempert, the Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.
They agreed on the need for the Joint Committee of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) and High Council of State (HCS) on the constitutional track, which is due to commence their second round of talks Sunday in Cairo, to produce tangible results, according to Williams.
“The talks are a critical opportunity to define a credible new electoral roadmap as the existing roadmap transitions to a new phase,” said the U.S. State Department Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs.
“We should honor the right of the Libyan people to democratically elect those who govern them through the ballot box in the context of a firm constitutional framework. It is also critical that calm on the ground is maintained,” UN Adviser tweeted on Saturday.
