Winners and losers in Libya’s political deal

A major political settlement in Libya has recently been agreed to after lengthy complicated negotiations. But unless the outcome is viewed as a win-win game, it could end up being just another round of empty talks.

Libya finally has a prime minister and Presidential Council. Whether this will bring unity and peace to the divided, war-torn country is another matter.

Credit for this positive development goes to Stephanie Williams, acting United Nations envoy and head of its Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).
