TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) -- Libya's Election Commission says it is recounting votes from parts of the eastern city of Benghazi and tallying ballots from abroad a week after citizens went to the polls to elect a parliament.
It says it is also reviewing appeals lodged by candidates following the release of partial results over the past week.
The commission's statement comes in response to expectations that on Saturday it would release the final results from Libya's first free nationwide vote since the ouster of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
Election Commission chief Nouri al-Abbar says the full official results may be announced Monday.
Partial results show that a coalition of liberals led by former rebel Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, who was the international face of the anti-Gadhafi revolt, beat out Islamist parties.
