Talks on Libya’s future adjourn without naming a new government to oversee a transition

Libya talks on future were adjourned on November 15 without naming a new government to oversee a transition to possible elections next December, said acting UN envoy Stephanie Williams, adding that there is a lot of work to do.

The latest efforts in bringing peace to the oil-rich North African nation brought 75 delegated together that were selected by the UN to represent a broad range of constituencies. However, Libya’s talks ended without having agreed on a unified executive authority.

The UN’s interim Libya envoy Stephanie Williams said, “We have agreed to reconvene in about a week in a virtual meeting (to) agree on the selection mechanism for the coming authority.” Adding further, she said, “Ten years of conflict cannot be resolved in one week.”
