Libyan leaders earlier this year had agreed a deal to conduct elections in December this year. But the deal that reached Paris with the support of the French government has since been abandoned.

The new election date is slated for spring of next year, according to the Italian Foreign Minister. Spring 2019 will span between March 2019 and June 2019.

Reporters quoted Italian Foreign Affairs Minister Enzo Moavero as saying on Wednesday that polls will be held next spring. Italy hosted a two-day conference in Palermo to try to stabilise the troubled North African country.



Libya’s two main rival leaders met for the first time in more than five months in Sicily on Tuesday and its prime minister endorsed a United Nations plan for an election next year.

The country is currently split between the internationally recognized government of national unity, GNU, based in Tripoli and the eastern government led by General Khalifa Haftar. The GNU is led by Fayez Al Sarraj.

Other interested parties that attended the talks included the European Union president and chief diplomat, president of Niger, Idris Deby and Tunisian president Essebsi.
