This article is more than 6 years old.

Today the people of Libya are voting to elect the people who will draft a new constitution. It has been three years since the start of the revolution that toppled Moammar Gaddafi, and the country still doesn't have a constitution.

The constitutional assembly that is being voted on today will be made up of 60 people from the three regions of Libya who will be asked to write the country's new constitution.

But with all the violence and uncertainty that remains in Libya, many people are divided over the way forward. The BBC's Rana Jawad has this report from Tripoli.
