A U.N-backed Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) aiming at paving the way for the scheduled national elections concluded in Switzerland on Friday, without finding a common ground.
To clear the way for the North Africa’s national elections slated for December 24 this year, members of the LPDF met on Monday in an undisclosed place in Switzerland for a week-long session.
They had been expected to establish the constitutional basis for presidential and parliamentary elections by July
“Despite all the opportunities, there is still no common ground. The people of Libya will certainly feel let down as they still aspire to the opportunity to exercise their democratic rights in presidential and parliamentary elections on December 24,” said Raisedon Zenenga, the Assistant UN Secretary-General, and Coordinator of the UN Support Mission in Libya in his closing remarks.
“As we conclude this session, I encourage you to continue to consult among yourselves to pursue a workable compromise and cement what unites you,” he added.
