    WASHINGTON D.C.: The United States is ready to help organize new elections in Libya in hopes of ushering in a more stable government, US officials said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) amid growing concern at the political turmoil. Libya’s electoral commission said on Tuesday that polls will take place on June 25 to replace its disputed interim parliament, according to the LANA state news agency. “We’re prepared to help support elections preparation from here,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, cautioning that Washington was still waiting for official word from Tripoli. Washington has a range of tools at its disposal, she said, declining to confirm however whether the US would be prepared to help with security arrangements.
