Libya Elections Postponed


Elections in Libya for a constituent assembly, originally set to be held by June 19, are to be postponed, possibly until July 10, for logistical reasons, France Presse reports, citing electoral commission members in Tripoli.

One commission member, on condition of anonymity, said the postponement until July or later had been decided mainly to allow time for appeals from candidates who had been ruled out of the contest.

Legislation earlier adopted by the country’s ruling Transitional National Council keeps parties with emphasis on ethnic, tribal and religious division from running for seats in the national legislature.
