Morocco’s capital, Rabat has hosted consultations between Libya’s two rival bodies on a dispute involving electoral law.
The meeting which held on Friday, comes less than three months before presidential and legislative elections announced for December 24.
The US Envoy to Libya, Richard Norland urged the two sides to reach an agreement.
According to Norland, for the elections to hold in December, all fractions must work together in unity.
“In order for the elections to take place on December 24th, as planned, the electoral campaign must begin immediately in one or two weeks, and in order to do so, there must be a legal and constitutional base, and this is what the Libyan representatives are going to establish today,” he stated.
Since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, violence has prevailed in Libya.
The chaos has been marked in recent years by rival powers in the east and west of the country.
