An InterContinental Hotel is seen under construction as election campaign billboards are erected on a street in Tripoli July 2, 2012. Nine months after the end of Libya's uprising, it is hoped that Saturday's election of a national assembly will mark a new start for an economy that stagnated under Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year autocratic rule.
