The UN-brokered meetings in Cairo urge the international community to support institutions representing the Libyan people to back consensus among Libyan parties as the only way to end the crisis.
The head of the Egyptian National Committee on Libya conveyed to the participating Libyan parties President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s support, affirming Egypt’s keenness to provide all possible support to the Libyan people in a way that helps achieve peace and stability in Libya.
Representatives of Libya's two rival governments will try to reach an agreement on holding national elections, after attempts towards unity in the past year came to a deadlock, following a decade of civil war.
The Egyptian-sponsored talks will extend for a whole week under the supervision of the UN Adviser on Libya Stephanie Williams, where a joint committee comprising 24 members of parliament and the Supreme Council of State selected for this purpose will negotiate to resolve the contentious articles in the draft constitution, according to Al-Arabiya.
"The ultimate solution to the issues that continue to plague Libya is through elections, held on a solid constitutional basis and electoral framework that provides the guard rails for an electoral process," Williams said in the opening session of the talks in Cairo.
