ARAB LEAGUE CHIEF URGES LIBYAN PARTIES TO REACH POLITICAL CONSENSUS

CAIRO, Egypt, Arab League (AL) Secretary-General, Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, urged on Sunday, Libyan parties to reach a consensus on political, constitutional and electoral steps, aspired by the Libyan people.

Aboul-Gheit called on the Libyan political parties, to overcome the current political impasse, and division in the war-torn Arab country, AL spokesman, Mahmoud Afifi, said, in a statement.

Aboul-Gheit also expressed his hope that the Libyans would reach an agreement, on a complete road-map to pave the way for the expected political and legislative elections, on sound legal and constitutional bases, Afifi added.

Despite signing a UN-sponsored peace agreement, by the Libyan political parties, in 2015, Libya remains politically divided between the eastern- and western-based governments, both competing for legitimacy.
