ASRSG, Stephanie Williams, holds a Consultative Meeting for the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum
Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Libya (ASRSG), Stephanie Williams, held yesterday a virtual consultative meeting for the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), during which participants laid out their views and proposals on the most suitable and consensual method to move forward with agreeing on a selection mechanism for the executive authority for the preparatory period leading to national elections, based on the roadmap agreed upon by the LPDF in its meeting in Tunisia in November.
ASRSG Williams praised the constructive discussions that were characterized by sense of seriousness and high awareness of the critical situation in the country. “Today I heard many of you stressing the need to move forward promptly, and that is a very positive indication,” said ASRSG Williams, emphasizing that it is up to the Libyans to deicide on a way forward and that they should “seize this opportunity” to achieve tangible progress and bring back hope to the Libyan people in the political process.
Based on its commitment to ensure equal opportunity for all LPDF members, UNSMIL will reach out to all members who were unable to attend this meeting and seek their views and proposals on the most suitable and consensual way to agree on a selection mechanism of the executive authority, in order to move forward in the implementation of the Road Map.
