Civil society activists from across Libya have called for the immediate withdrawal of foreign forces from Libya, urging authorities to improve living conditions, boost national reconciliation and achieve stability.

In a meeting with the UNSMIL Coordinator, Raisedon Zenenga, on Tuesday as part of UNSMIL discussions with Libyan actors, the activists reiterated the importance of ending the transitional phase in Libya by holding elections on December 24.

The activists said that establishing a constitutional basis for elections is also very important at this point.

Meanwhile, Zenenga said UNSMIL was keen on listening to Libyans and learn about their priorities, briefing the activists about the UNSMIL efforts on economic, political and security levels.
