The United Nations envoy for Libya has proposed the formation of a national unity government after months of difficult talks.   

UN envoy Bernardino Leon told a news conference in Morocco that Fayez Sarraj would be nominated as the prime minister.

He said the names of candidates for other posts had also been decided.

Since 2014 Libya has had two rival governments - an Islamist-backed one in Tripoli and an internationally recognised government in the east.
