The Security Council is urging all Libyans to improve the atmosphere for national elections in a resolution that avoids mentioning the Dec. 10 target date for voting.

Instead, the council resolution adopted unanimously Thursday notes U.N. envoy Ghassan Salamé’s call “for parliamentary and presidential elections to be held in Libya as soon as possible, provided the necessary security, technical, legislative and political conditions are in place.”

The resolution extends the mandate of the U.N. mission charged with supporting Libya’s political transition until Sept. 15, 2019.
