The Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Libya, Stephanie Williams, concluded her three-day visit to the city of Benghazi with a meeting with two political figures from the Gaddafi regime, Mustafa Al-Drissi and Saeed Rashwan.

In a tweet, Williams expressed her happiness with the meeting, explaining that she had a "fruitful discussion on a number of ongoing political initiatives and the need for national reconciliation."


The UN advisor added that she agreed with Al-Drissi and Rashwan "on the need to respect the will of nearly 3 million Libyans to go to the ballot boxes."

Over the course of three days, Williams conducted a number of meetings in Benghazi which included members of the Political Dialogue Forum from the eastern region, a number of activists, politicians and candidates for parliamentary elections, the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Libya, Ali al-Hibri, as well as local officials in the municipality.

Williams is aiming through her continuous meetings with various parties to mobilize support and maintain the momentum of the electoral process.
