Libya's internationally recognized parliament voted Monday to reject a unity government proposed under a U.N.-backed plan to resolve the political crisis and armed conflict.Since 2014, Libya has had two competing parliaments and governments, one based in Tripoli and the other in the east.Eastern lawmakers said the proposed 32-member government had been rejected because it included too many posts.The armed forces allied to the eastern government are led by Gen. Khalifa Haftar, a former Gadhafi ally who has become one of the most divisive figures among Libya's rival groups.Two of the Presidential Council's nine members also refused to put their names to the proposed government when it was announced after a 48-hour delay last week.
