The special representative for the UN secretary-general in Libya, Stephanie Williams, confirmed that "the mission is fully committed to holding elections," noting that the head of the High National Electoral Commission, Emad Al-Sayeh, briefed her during the past two days on his visit to the eastern part of the country and the readiness, requirements and timelines of the process."

Addressing members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum during a virtual meeting held online on Tuesday, Williams noted that she would "brief the Security Council today in closed session at 5:00 pm Libya time."

Williams told members of the political dialogue forum that she would stay with them "a little longer," and that she would be able to hold the legal committee meeting in January."

"I'm totally committed," Williams said. "The train has left the station on this path. Expectations are high at the international level, but most importantly at the level of the Libyan people, so let's not let them down, let's be smart, look forward and work together."
