Libya – Election Set for June

Libyan authorities proposed, on Tuesday, a June national election an attempt to ease tensions after the parliament was attacked on Sunday causing panic but no injuries.

The announcement of a nationwide June 25 vote came after the parliament met in what lawmakers had hoped would be a secret location.

A missile was fired at the hotel where the session was taking place, causing panic but no injuries.

Libya’s General National Congress (GNC) is at the heart of the crisis after gunmen claiming loyalty to retired Major General Khalifa Haftar, a renegade former general, attacked the parliament with anti-aircraft cannons on Sunday and demanding its suspension.
