Libya’s Seraj calls for polls:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

The head of Libya’s UN-backed gov­ern­ment has called for par­lia­men­tary and pres­i­den­tial elec­tions in March 2018, although his pro­pos­als will likely have to com­pete with other Libyan and in­ter­na­tional ef­forts to bring an end to the coun­try’s con­flict.

Fayez Seraj, prime min­is­ter of the Gov­ern­ment of Na­tional Ac­cord (GNA), also called for a na­tional cease­fire and the grad­ual merg­ing of ri­val par­lia­men­tary bod­ies based in Tripoli and eastern Libya in a speech re­leased late on Satur­day.

Seraj said he was putting for­ward the roadmap be­cause of his “de­ter­mi­na­tion to es­cape the cur­rent cri­sis and unify Libyans”.. (RTRS)
