The UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, confirmed that the presidential elections will be held by the end of this year.

He pointed out that the UN-led settlement in Libya rests on improving living conditions for Libyan citizens and re-establishing the daily life.

"The UN plan of action is based on parliamentary elections and then the referendum on the constitution to end with presidential elections before the end of this year," Salame told Al-Hurra channel Wednesday, stressing that the mission is reaching out to all political and armed parties in order to reach a consensus that would make the Libyan national dialogue a success.
