(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); what is mean by "charge in an electrostatic equilibrium" ??

In my text book the definition of the potential difference is that

"The workdone on a unit positive charge carrying it from one point to the other kepping the charge in electrostatic equilibrium"

In my text book electrostatic mean uniform velocity.I am confused!!

why we keep the charge in electrostatic equilibrium? What is the fact that this term is used?

thanks
