The Arab League (AL) on Monday called on the Libyan political parties to exert more efforts to overcome obstacles and hold elections on schedule in December this year, said a statement by the AL.
"The AL expressed regret over the failure of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) to reach a deal over a constitutional basis for the elections," said the statement.
It urges the Libyan different factions to make concessions to make the election process a success.
The AL called on all sides not to waste the available important opportunity through which the Libyan people will reach stability and find a way to reach a settlement.
On Saturday, the United Nations announced that the LPDF meeting which aimed to reach a final agreement on the constitutional basis regulating the upcoming elections failed after a strenuous five-day negotiation in Geneva.
The meeting attendees debated fiercely on whether to hold parliamentary elections only or holding parliamentary and presidential elections at the same time.
