UN envoy proposes Libya unity govt

 

 

TRIPOLI — The UN envoy for Libya proposed the members of a unity government Friday aimed at ending years of conflict, but the plan was dismissed by lawmakers in the country’s two rival parliaments. Libya has had two administrations since August last year when a militia alliance that includes Islamists overran the capital, forcing the internationally recognized government to take refuge in the east. The country descended into chaos after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, with the two sides vying for power as well as several groups battling for control of its vast resource wealth. The proposed new government would be headed by Fayez El-Sarraj, a deputy in the Tripoli parliament, and include three deputy prime ministers, one each from the west, east and south of the country. “After a year of work in this process, after working with more than 150 Libyan personalities from all the regions... finally the moment has come in which we can propose a national unity government,” UN envoy Bernardino Leon told a news conference in Morocco. — AFP
