Libya has taken an "important step forward" with this month's election results and the vote process showed the Libyan people's "commitment to democracy".
Libya's liberal coalition outscored Islamist parties in preliminary results unveiled by the electoral commission Tuesday -- but it remained unclear who will dominate the next congress.
Out of sight, in a large hall lit by welding sparks, workers in Libya are rushing to build an assembly fit for the country's first elected authorities since the ouster of Moamer Kadhafi's regime.
Libyans vote on Saturday for a constituent assembly, the first body elected since the ouster of dictator Moamer Kadhafi, tasked with steering the country through its critical transition.

I don’t see such course of events, I cannot even imagine it, because the situations in these two countries are very different: Fairfax

Kazakhstan party is hoping that the National Transition Council wil take immediate measures to provide security of the civilians: Foreign Ministry.
Kazakhstan called the countries of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to help Libya.
Diplomatic mission “is officially under flagship of the National Transition Council formed by Libyan opposition.”
A court hearing on Valeriy Tolmachev from Kazakhstan arrested in Italy for an attempt to hijack a plane is scheduled for April 26.
