Libya - Election Results

Late news from Al-Jazeera TV, Arabic channel, on July 9, 2012.

المفوضية العليا للانتخابات في ليبيا تعلن نتائج أولية في عدد من الدوائر الانتخابية بنظامي الفردي و القائمة

The high-commission for the elections in Libya is publishing first results from systematic counting of individual [votes] listed within the election districts.

النتائج الأولية لانتخابات المؤتمر الوطني الليبي تشير إلى تقدم تحالف القوى الوطنية

First results from the elections for the National Congress of Libya are hinting at a priority of the Coalition of Patriotic Forces.

* = According to the Arabic text, the party's name might be as well:
Alliance of National Forces. It depends on how they call themselves.
I had no time to check it over.


UPDATE on July 10:

Mahmoud Jibril

So, it's really the Alliance of National Forces (ANF) that is winning the elections ! Here is what an Arabic online source published at 8:39 Central European Time, i.e. some 30 minutes after the completion of my own blogspot:

" The Alliance of National Forces (ANF) led by Mahmoud Jibril, who headed the Transitional National Council (CNT) during the Libyan revolt, tops the list following the recent legislative elections in Libya, according to partial results announced Monday night by the election commission.

After counting 75% of the ballots, it was indicated that the ANF led the Islamist camp, whose Justice and Construction Party (JCP) was formed by the Muslim Brotherhoods. The Homeland Union, headed by a longtime opponent of Muammar Qaddafi's regime, leads in Misrata, the third largest city in the country.

One day after the election , the Liberal coalition has already said it was ahead in most constituencies. However, the final results will be declared later this week as counting could last another four or five days, indicated the electoral commission, which did not set a date for the official announcement of the winner.
