Libyan national assembly votes Magarief president

Published: 08.10.12, 07:04 / Israel News

Libya's ruling national assembly picked Mohammed Magarief, leader of the National Front party, as its president on Thursday, in a vote carried out a day after it took power from the outgoing National Transitional Council.


Magarief will head the 200-member congress, which will be charged with naming a prime minister, pass laws and steer Libya to full parliamentary elections after a new constitution is drafted next year. The vote counting was carried out in front of reporters and was televised live. (Reuters)
