Members of Libya's eastern parliament voted on Monday to reject the UN-backed government in the capital, Tripoli, a spokesman for the chamber said.

Abdallah Bilhaq said 101 deputies had attended the session, with 61 voting against the Government of National Accord (GNA), 39 abstaining, and just one voting in favour.

The parliament was voting on the issue for the first time since January, when it rejected an earlier list of ministers put forward by the GNA's leadership. Many members of parliament who have backed the GNA did not attend.
