Tunisian political forces on Thursday resumed national dialogue sessions following a three-month hiatus.

Upcoming sessions are expected to focus on the ongoing electoral process, Bouali Mbarki, deputy secretary-general of the Tunisian General Labor Union (UGTT), told reporters ahead of Thursday's session.

Dialogue participants, he added, would also discuss proposals for forming a commission tasked with following up on the government's commitment to implementing a transitional roadmap.

In January, the four sponsors of the national dialogue oversaw talks between the ruling Islamist Ennahda movement and the opposition with a view to resolving the nation's lingering political crisis.

The four sponsors of the dialogue initiative are the UGTT; the Tunisian League for the Defense of Human Rights; the Tunisian Industry, Trade and Handicrafts Union; and the National Bar Association.
