The U.N. Security Council Thursday extended its political mission in Libya for a year but did not endorse a Dec. 10 date for elections that was agreed during a Paris meeting four months ago.
Four key leaders from Libya agreed in May to hold the landmark polls on Dec. 10 as part of a French-led plan to stabilize the war-torn north African country despite ongoing violence and deep divisions.
The council unanimously adopted a British-drafted resolution that called for parliamentary and presidential elections to be held “as soon as possible, provided the necessary security, technical, legislative and political conditions are in place.”
