The Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to Libya, Stephanie Williams, on Friday held meetings with Libyan mayors and discussed their concerns about the political process.
“Based on the principles of social and political inclusivity, Stephanie Williams has been holding a series of meetings with mayors from the southern, western and the eastern parts of Libya.
“The mayors discussed concerns and recommendations regarding the political process, focusing on the phase preceding the national elections’’.
They urged the UN to advocate for better economic conditions and provision of services to the Libyan citizens at municipal level, the statement added.
Amid escalating violence and political division, Libya has been struggling to make a democratic transition since the fall of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi’s government in 2011.
