The head of Libya's Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj, confirmed his call for presidential and parliamentary elections next March, according to an appropriate constitutional base agreed upon by Libyans.

This came in his statement on Friday, in which he declared an immediate ceasefire and all combat operations on all Libyan territories.

He stressed the importance of resuming production and exports at the oil fields and ports, “provided that the revenues are deposited in a special account for the National Oil Corporation at the Libyan Foreign Bank and that they are not disposed of until after reaching comprehensive political arrangements, in accordance with the outcomes of the Berlin Conference, in a manner that guarantees transparency and good governance and with the help of the UN mission and the international community."
