Libya’s Democratic Party says the newly announced “Party” is not related to us

Ahmed Shebani, Founder & President of the Democratic

Libya’s Democratic Party confirms that the newly announced “Democratic Party” in Libya, is not related to their party, and has nothing to do with the Democratic Party.

“Our political party was established on the 14th of July 2011, following our Peoples’ Glorious Revolution on the 17th of February 2011.” Ahmed Shebani, Founder & President of the Democratic said in a statement sent to Libyan Express.

“Contrary to the newly established religious party, it is well known that our party is a secularist political party, that calls for the separation between religion and state, we feel that the deliberate misappropriation of our party’s name is neither moral nor politically acceptable.” he said.
