The Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) has suspended today the voting session on the constitution referendum law till after End Al-Adha holiday. 

In the meantime, two people were injured, including the HoR member Saleh Al-Hashim, on Tuesday ahead of the session to vote on whether or not to hold a popular referendum on a new constitution.

According to local media, Hashim had to be sent to hospital to remove the bullet he received in his body due to gunfight outside the HoR’s hall.

Sources reported that the clash was between members of the Libyan Presidential Guard and MPs opposing the draft law for a constitutional referendum.
