The Address | Benghazi – Libya
The EU Heads of Mission welcomed on Tuesday the approval by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) of the mechanism for selecting a new united executive authority for the entire country.
“We commend LPDF members, UN Acting Special Representative Stephanie Williams and the UNSMIL team for their relentless efforts and determination to achieve this important result,” EU Delegation in Libya said in a statement on its official Facebook page.
The Delegation said the decision was important to lay the ground for what the Libyan people deserve: a unified transitional government working on restoring basic public services and preparing the country for national elections on 24 December 2021.
“We hope the LPDF will now move swiftly to nominate a new executive based on the agreed mechanism,” it added.
It strongly encouraged “a full and meaningful inclusion and participation” of women in the peace process and “fully supported” women’s active political participation in all parts of the peace process and of the future governance of Libya.
