Libya is bitterly divided between rival governments in its east and west, after descending into chaos following the 2011 end of Muammar Gaddafi’s rule.
Tawfik al-Shaheibi, a member of the Islamist-backed parliament in Tripoli, said on Friday that Moroccan officials decided to change the venue for Monday’s talks because they were offended that UN talks with the Islamist-backed parliament took place in rival Algeria last week.
Participants are to vote on a unity government. Al-Shaheibi says his parliament will decide officially Sunday whether to go to Geneva.
The UN has said that parties which refuse to participate in the talks will be sanctioned.
