The president of the Tripoli-based General National Congress, Nuri Abu Sahmein (C-background), leads a parliament session in the Libyan capital on December 16, 2015, ahead of the expected signing of a UN plan for a national unity government. Libya has had rival administrations since August 2014, when the Islamist-backed Fajr Libya militia alliance overran Tripoli, forcing the elected government to take refuge in the far east near the border with Egypt. Under the UN plan, the new government is to be formed within 40 days of the accord's signing.
