TRIPOLI: Libya's parliament failed on Sunday to elect a new prime minister, with frontrunner Ahmed Miitig falling short of the 120 votes needed under the constitution.
Miitig, a businessman, beat university professor Omar al-Hassi by 73-43 but mustered only 113 votes in a vote of confidence in the 185-seat General National Congress.
It was the second time in a week that the GNC, Libya's top political authority, met to decide between the two candidates. Gunmen broke up a first session on Tuesday. -AFP
