A member of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), who is also a member of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), Saiyda Al-Yaqoubi, said in a press statement on Monday that she is content with the continuation of the acting head of the United Nations Support Mission to Libya (UNSMIL), Stephanie Williams, to continue until the end of the political dialogue.

Al-Yaqoubi’s statements come after the news that the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, issued a decision to hand over the position to a new envoy to Libya, the Slovakian diplomat, Jan Kubis, due to take over his mission from February 1, 2021.
