The UN envoy to Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, has sent an official proposal to the Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) and the Head of the High Council of State (HCS), presenting the UN Support Mission in Libya's (UNSMIL) readiness to provide the necessary support to the 6+6 Joint Electoral Committee. 

UNSMIL confirmed that the proposal aimed to accelerate the work of the 6+6 joint committee to support the Libyan-Libyan efforts aimed at holding comprehensive, free and fair elections in Libya in 2023.

UNSMIL also indicated that this support can be of a technical and logistical nature and through the provision of experts, according to what the members of the 6+6 committee of the HCS and HoR require as well as based on a joint written request from the committee.

The 6+6 committee held its first meeting on April 5 at the headquarters of the HCS in Tripoli and discussed its strategy and work mechanisms, as well as determined the foundations and starting points for its work.
