The Head of the European Union Mission in Libya, Jose Sabadell, reiterated the EU’s support for the Libyan people to bridge this stage and move forward towards a future of peace and stability.

This came during his meeting on Wednesday with the head of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Imad Al-Sayeh, in Tripoli.

The meeting covered the course of the electoral process, scheduled for next December, and methods to support the HNEC to implement this important process.

Both sides also reviewed the technical and advisory support to be provided by the EU mission through the “People Project”, which is due to be supervised by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), along with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
