A row broke out in the National Congress on Thursday, after one congressman walked out of the handover ceremony because the young woman hosting the event was not wearing a headscarf, Libya Herald reported.
Salah Baadi, an independent congressman from Misrata and prominent Islamist, walked out of the handover ceremony in protest.
Then, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, NTC Chairman, ordered Sarah Elmesallati to leave the stage midway through her presentation.
In what would appear to have been an indirect reference to the event, Jalil used his speech to emphasise the importance of freedom of expression in Libya whilst respecting its Muslim traditions.
The remainder of the ceremony was hosted by a young man, whose presentation passed off without incident.
