Libya sets February 20 vote for constitution panel

Published: 01.30.14, 23:13 / Israel News

Libya's interim parliament on Thursday set February 20 as the date for a national election to choose a 60-member panel to draft the country's long overdue constitution, while clashes erupted in an eastern city between soldiers and a powerful militia after the abduction of a military commander's son.


General National Congress head Nouri Abu Sahmein's announcement of the date for elections gives new hopes for ending a political deadlock that had stymied the rocky transition to democracy following the overthrow of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. (AP)
