6+6 Committee criticizes head of UNSMIL

The joint committee for electoral laws established by the High Council of State (HCS) and the House of Representatives (HoR), known as the 6+6 committee, has expressed its frustration with the approach of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).

This came in a statement issued by the committee in which it expressed its “surprise” at the mission’s letter regarding the electoral laws which were prepared by the committee, calling the UNSMIL to stop what it considered as attempts to force dictations. The statement considered that the mission is not only calling for amending laws, but also for amending the constitutional declaration itself, and thus “wants to take us steps back whenever we take steps forward” according to the 6+6 statement.

The committee said that the head of the UNSMIL Abdullah Bateli did not attempt to communicate with the committee in order to listen to the justifications for the perceptions and approaches it adopted to resolve the various points of contention.

The UNSMIL had issued a correspondence in which it called on the committee to amend some of the electoral laws it had prepared on the 7th of June, for presidential and parliamentary elections, in the Moroccan city of Bouznika.
