Election results in Libya

25. Juli 2014, von aus dem Netz

Of the total 200 seats in the new parliament, 188 were set, while the remaining 12 seats were absent due to boycott or insecurity in some electoral districts, according to Libya’s High National Electoral Commission.

Analysts said the secular factions have seemingly taken most of the seats, while the Islamist lawmakers, who had a bigger say in the old parliament, only won around 30 seats this time. Some feared that the results might intensify the current armed clashes between the secular forces and Islamist militants in the volatile North African country, given the imbalance of power between the two sides in the parliament.
