Libya adopts election law, abandons women's quota


Libya's ruling National Transitional Council said it adopted on Saturday a new electoral law on the basis of which the North African country will form its first constituent assembly.

The law, announced on the NTC's Facebook page, scraps a draft proposal that would have reserved for women 10 percent of the seats on the proposed 200-member General National Congress.
