There is a risk that Libya may be partitioned almost a year after the postponement of elections, the country’s U.N. envoy warned.

Abdoulaye Bathily, the U.N. envoy for Libya, said some institutional players are actively hindering progress toward elections.

Further prolonging the interim period will make the country even more vulnerable to political, economic and security instability and could put the country at risk of partition.

He urged Libyan leaders to work with resolve toward holding elections as soon as possible.
