The US ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, has met with the Chairman of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Imad Al-Sayeh.

“It was encouraging to hear Al-Sayeh confirm HNEC’s readiness to conduct elections once political agreement has been reached on the way ahead”, Norland tweeted.

Norland stressed that the formation of a joint committee of the House of Representatives and the High Council of State proposed by the Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Libya, Stephanie Williams, to adopt a constitutional basis, is a practical step towards holding the elections, urging all parties to support this process.
