Libya National Congress Extends Mandate, Creates Crisis
24/12/2013 03:40:00
Libya's General National Congress on Monday voted to extend its mandate until December 24, 2014, a decision that will not be accepted by many Libyans who see the Congress as being a huge failure.

102 members out of 120 who attended the session voted in favour of the new transition plan.

It also set a deadline for drafting the country's constitution to August next year.

According to the timetable on the basis of which the General National Congress was elected, by now it should have elected a constituent panel, drafted the constitution, held a referendum on it and then called for parliamentary elections before February 2014.

Now that the extension has become a fact, those who oppose this very idea are expected to begin to act and it remains to be seen what course the coming political struggle will take.
