 Libya's elected parliament has rejected a U.N. draft proposal to form a unity government to end a power struggle in the oil producing nation, a senior lawmaker said on Tuesday.

The parliament has also banned its delegates from travelling to Germany for a meeting with European and North African leaders as envisaged in a proposal from U.N. Special Envoy Bernardino Leon, the lawmaker, Tareq al-Jouroushi, told Reuters.

"A majority of deputies voted to reject the proposal," he said by telephone from Tobruk, an eastern city where the House of Representatives is now based.

Libya is in chaos, with two governments and parliaments fighting for control.
