Meeting of Libyan Political Dialogue Forum kicks off

A two-day virtual meeting of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) started on Wednesday.

The forum will discuss the “proposed constitutional basis for parliamentary and presidential elections” to be held on Dec. 24, as prepared by the LPDF Legal Committee, according to a statement by the UN Support Mission in Libya.

Libya has recently witnessed positive developments following a breakthrough on Feb. 5 when rival parties agreed on a unified new executive authority to govern the country until elections on Dec. 24.

Libyans hope the new government will end years of civil war that have ravaged the country since the ouster and killing of strongman Muammar al-Qaddafi in 2011.
