The Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Stephanie Williams, has announced the launch of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF).

UNSMIL said in a statement that the LPDF will convene its first virtual meeting on Monday, 26 October, while the direct face-to-face meeting will kick off on 9 November in the Tunisian capital.

“The resumption of the LPDF comes at time of an overwhelming sense of hope emerged in Libya after the signing of a permanent, countrywide ceasefire agreement between Libyan parties, on 23 October in Geneva.” UNSMIL added.

It explained that the invited participants in the LPDF are drawn from different constituencies, based on the principles of inclusivity, fair geographic, ethnic, political, tribal, and social representation. 

During the online consultation meeting on Monday, participants in the LPDF will be briefed on the intra-Libyan economic and military tracks facilitated by UNSMIL as well as run human rights and international humanitarian law track. They will also hear the recommendations emerged from the consultative meetings with Mayors, and representatives of women and youth groups.

UNSMIL urged participants to the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum to shoulder their responsibility before the Libyan people and engage constructively and in good faith in the talks and to uphold the interests of Libya.
