Libyan representatives proposed a method to select a new transitional government, the approval of which could help put the OPEC member on a path to stability after a decade of conflict.

The recommendation was presented by an advisory committee of regional representatives and the broader political forum will vote on it Monday, according to the United Nations acting envoy to the country, Stephanie Williams. While participants in the UN-backed talks have agreed on a December election date, the method of assembling a unified government has hit obstacles.
