The European Union Delegation issues the following statement in agreement with the EU Heads of Mission in Libya

The EU Delegation welcomes today’s announcement by the General National Council that the Elections for the Constitutional Drafting Assembly will be held on 20 February 2014. The EU Delegation commends the efforts of the High National Election Commission on the preparations for such an important event.

The election of the Constitutional Drafting Assembly will constitute a historic milestone in Libya’s transition process. A Constitution embodies the social contract between the government and the people it governs. It lays out the basic structure of the State and the government according to which the people are to be governed. It also protects the rights of all citizens equally, regardless of creed, gender, race or social standing.

The EU Delegation encourages a genuinely inclusive constitutional exercise in which all components of Libyan society feel adequately represented. The Constitution must be a document that enjoys the support of all political forces and the public. The EU Delegation calls on all political forces, components of Libyan society and citizens to participate fully in the elections for the Constitutional Drafting Assembly.

The EU Delegation reiterates its commitment to the successful conclusion of the transition process outlined in the Libyan Constitutional Declaration, the consolidation of democracy and the establishment of a stable and prosperous state based on national reconciliation, justice, respect for human rights and the rule of law.
