The Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Raisedon Zeninga, met with representatives of a network of Libyan political parties to discuss the UN Envoy Abdoulaye Bathily's initiative for elections.

The political parties include Libya’s Growth Party, Party for Change, Justice and Construction Party, Libya’s Technocrat Party, and the National Front and National Labour Party.

A statement by the UN mission on Twitter said the bloc called for including political parties in the electoral system and stressed the importance of considering their views in drafting the constitutional and legislative framework for elections.

They also shared proposals to avoid the factors that prevented the 2021 elections from going ahead and relayed what they consider shortcomings in the 13th Constitutional Amendment.

On his part, Zeninga thanked them for their proposals and commended their "inclusivity of women and their promotion to senior positions."
