Why the Libyan elections collapsed and what happened next

Why the Libyan elections collapsed and what happened next ...

Tunes, 22nd of June - While Libya announced its planned election on Wednesday, no event is yet planned in a second-hand case. For example, Libya didn't decide to return to war but had not worked on the date for an amendment or how to move forward.

The major questions are the main and the next ones will be discussed.

HOW ARE we Getting here?

Libya collapsed after 2011 revolt against Muammar Gaddafi, and collapsed in 2014 between the eastern and the western factions. Peace processes follow the collapse in 2020 of the eastern commander's 14-month attack on Tripoli.

Haftar's LNA holds eastern and southern areas, with western areas including Tripoli and other areas that are owned by various forces and backed the government there.

The United Nations held talks to address the question from the entire group of factions, which tended to be a leader in a union and established a parliamentary and presidential election.


Other countries, including major factions and potential candidates, disagreed with the rules for the election, and even its schedule, what powers or powers the new president or parliament might have and who could run.

If you vote for the presidency, only a single poll will take place on Dec. 24. The presidential election will be finalized with second round runoff and the parliamentary election will be followed by the two-time winner.

In giving the presidential vote the first time, the election happened to an winners-takes-all contest between candidates from violently opposing factions.

Other political institutions rejected the law, accusing Saleh of passing it without proper parliamentary process.

However, Saleh's law is the foundation of the electoral process, and even more disputes over it grew more and more with divisive candidates entered the competition.

Who are the Grandma-Presidents?

Around 98 people were in the presidential race, among them those who were seen as incompatible in certain parts of the country, or as well as as powerful armed factions.

In 2015 despite his conviction by a Tripoli court of war crimes during the revolt, that left his father Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 for the mortage of his father.

Eastern commander Khalifa Haftar, who led a liarious 14-month offensive against Tripoli, is rejected as a possible president by many western people and factions.

The interim prime minister Abdulhamid al-Dbeibah promised not to stand for election when he was appointed. Other candidates say that his presence on the ballot is unfair.

Without a clear agreement on the rules, or who would enforce them or adjudicate disputes, the electoral commission, the parliament's election committee and the distorted judiciary would not stand to agree final list of eligible candidates.


Most of Libya is controlled by military forces, that support candidates and without extensive independent monitoring, there will likely be claims of fraud or voter intimidation.

The murder of the killings began as a result of last month's crimes. The fight would shut a court to stop the lawyers in Gaddafi's decision to disqualify his lawyers. And the electoral commission said that fighters raided several of its offices and stole voting tickets.

In a disputed result, the peace process quickly unravels, compared to the aftermath of 2014 election when rebel factions supported rival governments.

What's the matter?

The electoral commission suggested a one-month delay, but the parliament could seek an alternate option. We are pursuing new political objectives, as well as negotiations between the political institutions and foreign powers.

This may not be sufficient to resolve the arguments denailed Friday's vote. The help of the problem could require more time for them, suggesting that the interim government could stand in place.

Dbeibah's future and his government in the coming period have become a major dispute issue among rival camps.


If the peace process falls apart, there is a risk that eastern factions can form a racial alliance at war with Dbeibah's in Tripoli. However, analysts think that isn't feasible for now.

The more immediate risk is that a political crisis will fuel local disputes between rival armed groups that have mobilised in western Libya in recent weeks, leading to a new fight in the capital.
