Libya agree on national unity government

After month of failed talks, rival factions in Libya have finally settled on a new proposed government..And a Prime Minister.

Negotiators who attended the peace talks representing the rival governments approved the names of candidates, but the parliaments for both sides must approve them, too.

Several MPs on both sides of the divide have however been quoted describing latest announcement as premature. A position that could potential hand the UN brokered deal a body blow.

Libya has had rival administrations since August last year, when an alliance of militias from the city of Misrata known as Libya Dawn took over the capital, Tripoli.
