United Nations (AP) — United Nations political leaders told Libyan rival factions on Monday that this was " We hope that it will lead to the long-awaited vote "on the earliest possible day."

Rosemary Dicarlo told the UN Security Council in a meeting in Cairo from June 12th to 20th that rivals were "controversial articles" in the proposed 2017 Constitution. He reached a "wide agreement on most" and said it was "worthy of praise."

Oil-rich Libya has been destroyed by conflict since the NATO-backed uprising collapsed in 2011, killing long-time dictator Moammar Gadhafi. I did. Backed by military commander Harifa Hifter, and a UN-supported government in the capital of Tripoli. Each side is supported by different militias and foreign forces.

The Cairo Conference was said in 2017 by the High Council of State of Tripoli, which is based in the eastern part of Libya, the House of Representatives, and the western part.

"The leaders of both houses accept the invitation of (UN) Special Adviser Stephanie Williams, who will meet in Geneva from June 28-29, to discuss and agree on measures governing the transition period. I encourage you to reach the election, "she said.

Dicarlo tells the 15 members of the Security Council and all international partners in Libya "to seize the opportunities presented by the agreement reached in Cairo. "Call on the leaders of two chambers of commerce" and "elections." It failed because the administration was unable to proceed with the vote. This failure has had a major impact on international efforts to end the decade of turmoil in Libya.

Daveiba refused to resign and questioned his mission. In response, eastern-based lawmakers have elected rival Prime Minister Fashy Bashaga. Fashy Bashaga is a powerful former Interior Minister who currently runs another government from the city of Silt.

After last year's tentative steps towards unification, rival governments are now claiming power.

Dicarlo warned that "continuing political divisions are contributing to the tense security environment in and around Tripoli," calling for national reconciliation efforts.

She warned that the issue of Libya's CEO has not been resolved and that the armed groups are in a position to support Deveva or Bashaga, "increasing the risk of escalation."

After the recent Cairo Conference, Libyan media reports argued that the main topic disputed was the criteria for presidential candidates.

Reportedly, the Tripoli-based council argued that military personnel would be banned from running for the country's top posts. Meanwhile, eastern-based lawmakers have called for permission to run military personnel.
