The Acting Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Stephanie Williams, announced Saturday that the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) members will vote on Monday on a selection mechanism for the interim executive authority.

In a press conference in Geneva, Williams said that the advisory committee of the LPDF has reached an agreement on a mechanism for selecting a temporary executive authority.

"It is important to reflect and to remind everyone that what we are talking about here is a temporary, unified executive authority that will be replaced by a permanent, democratically elected government, chosen by the Libyan people on December 24th of this year," Williams said, noting that the voting process will take place remotely due to coronavirus related measures.

It is noteworthy that, over the past three days, the advisory committee of the LPDF held intensive meetings in Geneva under the auspices of the United Nations, and reached Saturday a consensus proposal to choose the executive authority, which will be put to the vote on Monday.
