The United States has renewed its call for an agreement on a legal framework for the delayed presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya.
US Ambassador Richard Norland said in a tweet that his country supported the call of Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya Abdoulaye Bathily “for the 6+6 committee to reach agreement on a legal framework for elections and urge all of Libya’s political leadership to bring their influence to bear without delay.”
Meanwhile, Bathily received a delegation of the 6+6 committee at the headquarters of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya in Tripoli.
“Bathily reiterated the importance of the committee’s role and responsibilities to produce the laws necessary to hold general and inclusive elections in Libya,” UNSMIL said on Twitter on Saturday.
“Bathily joined by UNSMIL’s technical team, exchanged views with committee members on issues related to legal framework for elections. He renewed the Mission’s offer to provide all required support to enable the committee to conclude its work as soon as possible,” it added.
