On Tuesday, the Libyan Constitutional Committee kicked off its second-day meetings in the Egyptian coastal city of Hurghada to discuss the constitutional arrangements necessary for the holding of elections, according to a statement by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).
Two delegations from the House of Representatives and the High Council of State, each comprising 15 members, are participating at the meeting.
The Head of the UNSMIL, Stephanie Williams, stressed on the necessity of agreeing on the constitutional arrangements, given its importance and connection to the other tracks.
“If you fail to reach an agreement, this will have very negative repercussions on the other tracks including the security and economic situation. Therefore, you have a great responsibility to reach a consensus on the constitutional arrangements,” Williams said in her opening remarks.
The statement noted that the UNSMIL supports and encourages constructive dialogue between the two Councils and looks forward to the outcome of the Committee’s deliberations by the 60-day deadline.
