PARIS (Reuters) – Those attempting to obstruct the election process and the political transition in Libya will be held accountable and may face United Nations sanctions, according to the draft conclusions of a conference to be held in Paris on Friday.

The draft conclusions, seen by Reuters, urge all parties to keep to a timetable for presidential and parliamentary elections that are due to start on Dec. 24. They also call for an existing action plan for the withdrawal of mercenaries and foreign forces to be implemented without delay.
