Envoy Bernardino Leon, who has been shepherding peace talks between Libya's rival parliaments, presented what the UN mission (UNSMIL) described as a "basis from which the parties can work" towards a solution.

The proposal speaks of a unity government headed by a president and a presidential council of independent figures, along with a parliament representative of all Libyans and a high state council.

A national security council and a municipality council would also be created. An existing constitutional drafting committee will also be part of the transition.
