Geneva, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 17th Jan, 2021 ) :Envoys at talks aimed at ending nearly a decade of war in Libya will vote Monday on a mechanism to choose an interim executive that would govern until polls in December, a top UN official said.
Monday's vote concerns a "temporary unified executive authority that will be replaced by a permanently democratically elected government, chosen by the Libyan people on December 24 of this year," said Williams.
"It embodies the principles of full inclusivity, transparency and fair representation across regions and within different population groups," she said.
"As I have repeatedly stated, this is a Libyan-Libyan solution. Our role is to support and facilitate." Libya was thrown into chaos after a 2011 NATO-backed uprising toppled Kadhafi.
The UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) controls Tripoli and most of the west, while a rival administration dominated by military strongman Khalifa Haftar controls Benghazi and the east.
