Libya's elected parliament supports UN peace plan

By Correspondent | June 24th 2015

Libya's elected parliament has voted to stay in United Nations peace talks after calling for amendments to a proposed power-sharing deal aimed at ending the conflict between the country's two rival governments.

 Western governments are pushing the two factions to agree to the UN deal as the only way to end a crisis that threatens to split the North African OPEC state four years after an uprising ousted strongman Muammar Gaddafi.

An internationally recognised government and elected House of Representatives operates in the east while a self-declared government holds the capital Tripoli.
