Strengthening Libya’s nascent legacy of democratically elected governance; and national institutions that are transparent, inclusive and credible:
- Since its establishment, the HNEC has successfully conducted three national electoral processes, including elections of the General National Congress (2012); Constitutional Drafting Assembly (2014); and House of Representatives (2014).
- Two substantive groups were registered to vote in 2021, new young voters or voters who changed their residence since the last voter registration exercise in 2017.
Contribution to global goals for peace, freedom and sustainable development
- Conducting elections contributes directly to United Nations Agenda 2030 – a plan of action for people and planet, to achieve peace and freedom; and to the Sustainable Development Goals they encompass. These include SDG 16 to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels; and SDG 5 to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
