Last Saturday (July 06) Libya held its first countrywide elections in nearly fifty decades since the former dictator Muammar Gadhafi was executed by the rebels. The results of the election could still be days away from an official number.
However the unofficial and partial counts from Libya’s biggest cities suggest that liberal factions were leading the Muslim Brotherhood to first major setback to their political surge after last year’s uprising.
The historical counting started last Sunday (July 07) after all the polls where moved from different locations in the country to the capital Tripoli. The preliminary results could still be announced late on Monday. (AV)
