Libya's two political rivals agree to hold elections within two years
Dec 6, Tripoli: Tripoli-based General National Congress (GNC) and the internationally recognised Tobruk-based House of Representatives have signed an agreement to hold election within two years aiming to resolve the country's deep political crisis.
A declaration announced on Sunday said the both the political rivals also agreed to form a 10-member committee to help choose a government of national reconciliation.
The conflict between the two powerful factions erupted more than a year ago when they set up rival governments and parliaments in a battle for control of the oil-rich North African nation.
GNC and House of Representatives politicians are expected to name an interim president and a deputy within two weeks.
The agreement comes ahead of UN-brokered peace talks to be held in Rome on December 13, media reports said.
