The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) announced that it is due to hold a virtual two-day meeting for the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) on May 26 and 27 to complete the legal committee’s proposal on the constitutional basis for the parliamentary and presidential elections scheduled to take place on December 24.

UNSMIL said in a statement that the results of the LPDF’s deliberations on this proposal will then be forwarded to the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HCS) for consideration, noting that the deadline for constitutional and electoral framework, set for July 1, must be observed in order to enable the High National Elections Commission to proceed with the preparation of the elections ahead of time.
