ATLANTA -- The Carter Center is sending observer teams to Libya to monitor and report on that country's July 7 parliamentary elections.
Former President Jimmy Carter said in a statement Wednesday that he hopes the center's limited mission will contribute "to a peaceful, transparent and credible electoral process and will support Libyans' aspirations to build a strong democracy."
Voters will elect a national assembly that is expected to write a new constitution for Libya. The election will be Libya's first national vote since the capture and killing of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi last October.
The Atlanta-based Carter Center said security will restrict deployment of observers in some areas. Consequently, it said it won't offer a comprehensive review of the election.
The center was invited to observe the election by Libya's election commission.
