United Nations Support Mission In Libya welcomes the adoption of the Electoral Law
United Nations Support Mission In Libya welcomes(UNSMIL) the adoption of the Electoral Law which constitutes an important step in Libya's transition to democracy. The electoral process, including the drafting of the law, is Libyan-led.
UNSMIL has provided technical support to the NTC Electoral Committee, and stands ready to work with the newly established Higher National Electoral Commission in its implementation of the electoral process.
The first free election for over four decades will provide an opportunity for Libyans to exercise their democratic rights to participate in a process which will shape the future of their country. UNSMIL remains committed, as mandated by the UN Security Council, to assist and support Libyan national efforts to undertake political dialogue, promote national reconciliation and embark upon the electoral process.
