Libya's largest parliamentary group boycotts congress

TRIPOLI - Libya's largest parliamentary coalition boycotted the national congress for a second day on Monday, protesting at delays in forming a committee to draft the country's first constitution, a spokesman said Monday.
The National Forces Alliance (NFA) bloc, formed last year by liberal war-time leader Mahmoud Jibril and holding 39 of the 80 seats in parliament, walked out of the session late on Sunday and did not show up for the meeting on Monday."We have withdrawn from the congress meetings because it has not met its duties in making the constitution a reality," bloc spokesman Tawfiq Breik told Reuters.
