利比亚的新国民议会推选前反对派领袖穆罕默德·埃尔·梅加里夫担任总统。

在共有200个议席的国民议会的表决中,梅加里夫获得113票,击败独立人士齐丹。齐丹获得85票。

在利比亚国民议会星期四晚间表决的一天前,利比亚过渡委员会将权力转交国民议会。利比亚上个月举行了60年来的首次自由选举,国民议会由此产生。

梅加里夫是利比亚成立最早的反对派组织拯救利比亚全国阵线的领袖,该组织曾数次试图结束卡扎菲的42年统治。

梅加里夫自上世纪80年代以来长期流亡国外,去年爆发反抗卡扎菲的革命后,他返回利比亚。

梅加里夫现在是全国阵线党领袖。利比亚新宪法草拟完毕后,梅加里夫将负责筹备举行议会全面选举。

Libya's new national assembly has elected former opposition leader Mohammed el-Megarif as its president.

Mr. Megarif received 113 votes from the 200-member Congress, defeating independent Ali Zidan, who won 85.

The vote late Thursday came just one day after Libya's transitional council handed power to the assembly, which was elected last month in the nation's first free election in 60 years.

Mr. Megarif was the leader of Libya's oldest opposition movement, the National Front for the Salvation of Libya, which tried several times to end the 42-year rule of late leader Moammar Gadhafi.

After living in exile since the 1980s, Mr. Megarif returned to Libya following the revolution last year that ousted Gadhafi.

Mr. Megarif, now head of the National Front party, will steer the nation to full parliamentary elections after a new constitution is drafted.
