The UN chief’s special adviser on Libya on Sunday called on both its interim prime minister and his parliament-designated successor to maintain stability and said elections should be held as soon as possible. This, Al Jazeera reports, after Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, prime minister of the UN-recognised Government of National Unity said he will hand over power only after an election, and rejected parliament’s move last Thursday to appoint former interior minister Fathi Bashagha to head a new government. Libya was meant to hold presidential and parliamentary elections in December, but arguments between factions and bodies of state over how they should take place led to the collapse of the process days before the vote.
