No presidential bid announced by Haftar until elections legal framework is set, says spokesman

Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) will not announce whether he will run for president in December until the constitutional basis for this year’s elections is set, said LNA spokesman on Thursday.
