The Acting Head of the UN mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Stephanie Williams said on Wednesday that the participants of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), which is being held in Tunisia, have reached an agreement on holding free, fair, inclusive and credible parliamentary and presidential elections, within 18 months.

Williams added in a press conference that the agreement includes steps to unite institutions and to return displaced people.

She also expressed the UNSMIL’s rejection of what she described as “disinformation and disruption campaigns” accompanying the meetings of the Forum and the meetings of the Joint Military Commission (JMC) in Sirte.

Williams pointed out that the Military Sub-Committee emanating from the JMC, that concerned with the withdrawal of forces from the frontlines, will present their proposals to the JMC on Thursday, stressing that the JMC is continuing its discussions, clarifying that it has made progress on the ceasefire agreement.

“The discussions of the Political Dialogue in Tunisia will address on Thursday, the prerogatives and competencies of the new unified transitional government”, she explained, confirming that no final decisions have been taken.
