Both the UN-backed GNA government in Tripoli and the east-based parliament supported by military strongman Khalifa Haftar have announced a cease-fire in the restive region. The GNA has also called for elections in March.

Libya's neighboring warring rival governments on Friday announced an immediate nationwide cease-fire.

Prime minister of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Sarraj, said he had instructed aligned forces to observe an immediate ceasefire and end all combat operations across the oil-rich country.

The international-backed government also called for demilitarizing the strategic city of Sirte, which is controlled by rival forces. Tripoli also announced that parliamentary and presidential elections will be held in March next year.

I think March is too far off. But, we have something at least. I just don't hold a lot of promise with the cease fire.
