The Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Abdoulaye Bathily held talks on Tuesday with the Tunisian Foreign Minister, Othman Jerandi, which focused on ways to encourage political and security actors to move forward with the dialogue and reach elections as soon as possible.

"We called on relevant institutions to swiftly finalize the constitutional basis for elections as the country nears the one year anniversary of the postponement of the 2021 elections," Bathily wrote on Twitter.

The UN official said that they agreed on the need to strengthen coordination among regional actors to encourage all Libyan actors to reach an agreement and break the deadlock.
