UNSMIL reported today that Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya, Stephanie Williams, has been holding a series of meetings with mayors from the South, West and the Eastern part of Libya. This comes as part of Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) process, based on the principles of social and political inclusivity, it explained.
UNSMIL reported that the mayors discussed concerns and recommendations regarding the political process, focusing on the phase preceding the national elections. They urged the United Nations to advocate for an improvement of economic conditions and better provision of services to the Libyan citizens at municipal level.
UNSMIL said it values the contribution made by Mayors across Libya and will continue to engage with them throughout the LPDF process.
