    The participants in the Committee asked UNSMIL to help activate their decision and provide the necessary support for conducting the referendum once the date is determined.

    UNSMIL said it "commends the two delegations on their decision to meet within the framework of the Roadmap agreed by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum and for the delegations' pledge to consult closely with the High National Elections Commission".

    "The Mission also appreciates the declared commitment of the two delegations to hold national elections on 24 December in response to the overwhelming demand of the Libyan people to renew the democratic legitimacy of their institutions via the ballot box. UNSMIL will continue to engage with all relevant stakeholders to support the electoral process leading to a democratic and stable Libya," it said.(ANSAmed). (ANSA).
