Rafik Hariri Center Senior Fellow Karim Mezran is quoted in Al-Monitor by South Asia Center Nonresident Senior Fellow Barbara Slavin on Libyan interim Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni's recent meetings with Obama administration officials in Washington:

Mezran said that “in theory, the congress should decide in 45 days when to hold presidential elections” and voting for that office might take place in the fall.
