The GNC holds on Wednesday an extra-ordinary meeting to vote on the UNSMIL amendments on the fourth draft.

On Tuesday the dialogue team of GNC held extensive meetings with the different committees of GNC to review these amendments.

Meanwhile, the amended draft of UNSMIL has sparked widespread anger among activists. A planned protest is to take place outside the GNC on Wednesday afternoon to denounce the draft and exert pressure on the GNC to refuse it.

Member of the dissolved parliament, Abdul-Rahman Al-Swaihli, who boycotted Tobruk meetings, denounced the current draft saying "it's a big blow to the aspirations of Libyans."

Gathering of Revolution Squares, a civil society based in Tripoli, has also denounced the amended draft, urging the GNC to refuse it.
