The Libyan Electoral Commission: 98 candidates for the presidency and the appeal against any candidate is available in all cities


The Electoral Commission in Libya said that the door for candidacy for the presidential elections was closed yesterday, Monday, revealing that the number of candidates reached 98, stressing that the challenge to presidential candidates can take place in all Libyan cities.

She explained that the final lists will be announced on the seventh or eighth of next December, noting that the judiciary will decide if any candidate is challenged.

Regarding the parliamentary elections, the commission said that 1,766 candidates applied for parliamentary seats, with an expected number of 4,000 candidates for the House of Representatives.

Challenge the candidates

With regard to objections to candidacy, the commission said that the judiciary will decide on the issue of Article 12 in the event that any candidate is challenged, and that the appeal against presidential candidates can take place in all Libyan cities.

Among the most prominent of these figures are retired Major General Khalifa Haftar, the current Prime Minister Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba, in addition to Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

And the Electoral Commission had previously announced in a statement last Wednesday that “candidacy applications attached to documents related to the legal requirements submitted to the commission do not necessarily mean that the candidate’s application has been accepted.”

Regarding the candidacy of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, Taher al-Sunni, head of the Libyan mission to the United Nations, revealed that he met at the United Nations headquarters in New York, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, prior to the briefing session that Khan will give today, Tuesday.

The International Criminal Court reminded a few days ago that the legal status of Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi has not changed, and that the warrant for his arrest is still in force.
