The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) facilitated Friday a virtual meeting of the Proposals Bridging Committee to continue the efforts to find common ground and complete the development of a constitutional basis that will enable the holding of national elections on December 24, 2021in line with the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum's (LPDF) roadmap.
UNSMIL said the meeting was held upon the request of members of the Proposals Bridging Committee of the LPDF, saying it took place in a cordial atmosphere, with the Committee resuming the negotiations it had started in Geneva two weeks ago.
"Members of the Committee agreed to continue their work immediately after the Eid Al-Adha holidays, focusing on reaching an agreement on a draft constitutional basis that will be submitted to the LPDF plenary." UNSMIL added.
Sources close to the Proposals Bridging Committee said the meeting that was supposed to be for two days failed to build bridges among members and thus UNSMIL had to cut it short and announced it would resume meetings after Eid Al-Adha.
