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 United Nations special envoy to the country had states earlier this week that the December 2018 date was not achievable and cited a spike in violence as the main reason for the postponement.

“We believe that conditions are more conducive to a return to our action plan and that is what we intend to do by first calling on Libyans to meet preferably on Libyan soil.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
