Libya's Supreme Court has declared the election of Ahmed Maetig as prime minister to be unconstitutional.

In the latest political turmoil to strike the country, a judge at the Supreme Constitutional Court said on Monday "the election of Maetig at the General National Congress [was] unconstitutional".

Maetig, a 42-year-old independent backed by religious groups, was elected in a chaotic session of parliament in early May, in a vote that had been disputed by some politicians and judicial experts.
