Former UN Envoy praises outcome of the Inter-Libyan Dialogue Forum


FORMER Special Representative of the UN Secretary General in Libya, Ghassan Salamé, has welcomed the achievements made at the Intra-Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in Tunis which has adopted a roadmap for the organisation of general elections on 24 December, 2021.

“Only those who understand the complexity of the Libyan crisis are able to measure the great progress that has been made during the days of political dialogue in Tunisia,” Salamé said in a tweet published on Sunday.

He also commended participants in the Forum, Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General, Stephanie Williams, and the members of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), for enhancing the progress previously made in the military and economic fields.

On Sunday evening, Williams announced the end of the Political Dialogue Forum after agreeing on three areas covering the mandate of the executive authority, the criteria for candidacy and the roadmap.

“We now have a clear map for the elections of 24 December 2021,” Williams said at a press conference in Tunis on Sunday, adding, “we have agreed to meet again via the Internet in a week’s time” to decide on the powers of the new authority and the criteria for appointment to senior positions in the new executive.
