The Special Envoy of the Secretary-General and Head of UNSMIL renews his call on all concerned parties, including the LPDF members, the House of Representatives, and the High Council of State to respond to the aspiration of the Libyan people and work to swiftly finalize the constitutional basis and the legal framework for the elections, the statement read.
