A number of members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) have confirmed that they had received a notification from the United Nations Support Mission (UNSMIL) to postpone the virtual meeting scheduled for this week.

The Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations on Libya, Stephanie Williams, was scheduled to meet with the LPDF members, as part of her intense political meetings with political actors in the Libyan file.

Williams confirmed that setting the next date for the elections belongs to the competent authorities in Libya, expressing the readiness of the UNSMIL to assist in holding free and fair elections.
