Libya’s parliament is to fix a date for the presidential elections meant to have taken place last week.

According to Aljaezera on Monday, the parliamentary committee presented a report saying it would be risky to set a new date for the election.

The parliamentary committee recommended a new applicable roadmap in a report read to members of parliament by the president of the committee, Al-Haid al-Sghayer.

The election was meant to have been Libya’s first-ever direct presidential ballot. But months of disputes saw the election postponed just two days before it was to take place.

The election which was set for December 24 was derailed by bitter arguments about divisive candidates and a disputed legal framework.

In a joint statement released on Friday, 5 Western nations had called for a new electoral timeline to be put in place as soon as possible.
