Williams reiterates her intention to facilitate consensus between HoR and HCS

UN Adviser Stephanie Williams has expressed her readiness to facilitate consensus between the House of Representatives and High Council of State (HCS), expecting that representatives of the House of Representatives (HoR) will soon join the consultations held in Tunisia so that the joint committee can officially start the consultations.

In an opening speech, Tuesday, in the informal session of the consultations on the constitutional framework, Williams confirmed that she was “somewhat” supportive of the consensus between the House of Representatives and the High Council of State, which resulted in the 12th constitutional amendment, outlining her awareness of the essential role of the two chambers in agreeing on a constitutional basis, and saying that it is within the mandate of the UN mission to facilitate the holding of elections in the shortest possible time frame.

Williams added that the consultations will address sensitive and difficult questions about the future political system, eligibility criteria and the electoral framework, reiterating the importance of holding elections on a solid constitutional and legal basis, in addition to working hard to reach consensus on a constitutional basis that would allow for comprehensive, fair and transparent national elections.

Williams indicated that, through communication with everyone; she sought to make the voices of registered voters heard, and constantly called on the political parties concerned to respect and achieve the political rights of the Libyan people to choose their leaders through the ballot boxes.
