The Delegation of the European Union (EU) said Tuesday that the EU Heads of Mission had welcomed the approval by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) of the mechanism for selecting a new united executive authority for the entire country.
“We commend LPDF members, UN Acting Special Representative Stephanie Williams and the UNSMIL team for their relentless efforts and determination to achieve this important result.” The EU Delegation in Libya said in a statement.
It added that the LPDF’s decision was important to lay the ground for what the Libyan people deserve, which is a unified transitional government working on restoring basic public services and preparing the country for national elections on 24 December 2021.
“We hope the LPDF will now move swiftly to nominate a new executive based on the agreed mechanism. We strongly encourage a full and meaningful inclusion and participation of women in the peace process and we fully support women’s active political participation in all parts of the peace process and of the future governance of Libya.” The statement said.
The EU delegation in Libya also reiterated the responsibility of Libya’s main stakeholders in moving forward towards the stabilization of the country and working for the general interest of all Libyans.
“We call upon all Libyan leaders to take up this opportunity in a spirit of compromise to find a sustainable peaceful solution. Libya needs urgent decisions to consolidate the ceasefire, stabilize and relaunch the economy, restore public services and improve the living conditions of the Libyan people.” The EU said.
