The head of Libya's internationally-recognized parliament based in the country's far east has criticized the U.N. envoy to the North African country, saying the diplomat is acting like a "ruler".Parliament speaker Agila Saleh also accused the international community of trying to impose a unity government that goes against a U.N.-brokered agreement reached by Libya's rival parties last December.Since 2014, it has been split into two main camps – an outdated parliament and a government backed by a set of Islamist militias and seated in Tripoli, and Saleh's parliament and its government based in eastern Libya.In eastern Libya, the parliament headed by Saleh is expected to vote on the unity government on April 18, in accordance with the U.N.-brokered deal.
