Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi back in presidential race
The Sebha Court of Appeal on Thursday allowed Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi to run for president, after accepting his appeal following a ruling that had him excluded from the 24 December presidential polls.
The ruling came after Haftar forces, withdrew, Tuesday, from the Sabha Court after having it under seize for two days.
They forced the court to close, preventing judges from looking into Gaddafi’s appeal against his exclusion from the elections.
The UN mission in Libya threatened, Monday, to impose Security Council sanctions against “those obstructing the justice and electoral system.”
The Libyan Electoral Commission announced a primary list last week of 73 candidates for the election and another with 25 people excluded from running, including Gaddafi.
