Libyan parliament agree to meet in Geneva: UN envoy

TRIPOLI: The Speaker of the House of Representatives and the head of Libya's High Council of State have agreed to meet in Geneva on November 14 to discuss a constitutional framework leading up to elections, Stephanie Williams, the UN Secretary-Special General's Advisor on Libya said.

She tweeted on Thursday that Khaled al-Meshri and Aguila Saleh accepted her invitation to meet on June 28 and 29, at the UN Office in Geneva, to "reach consensus on the remaining issue" of a draught constitution.

The competing chambers made their overtures after their latest round of constitutional deliberations in Cairo came to an end without a resolution, according to news reports.

After the talks on Monday, Williams stated that there are still disagreements "on the measures controlling the transitional phase leading to elections," and he urged the two presidents to get together as soon as possible to resolve these issues.

Due to conflicts among the Libyan parties regarding the election laws, Libya was unable to hold national elections in December 2021.Since the late leader Muammar Gaddafi's overthrow in 2011, the nation of North Africa has seen political turmoil and catastrophe.
