U.S.-Educated Academic’s Alliance Prevails in Libyan Election

A Libyan political alliance led by a U.S.-educated academic and former opposition leader won 39 out of 80 seats reserved for political parties in the country’s new national assembly, according to final election results.

The National Forces Alliance, a collection of about 60 political groups headed by Mahmoud Jibril, defeated other parties in the country’s first free election since the removal of Muammar Qaddafi, according to ratified results released early today by the election commission in Tripoli.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Justice and Construction party came in second in the July 7 vote, winning 17 of the party-list seats, according to the commission. Libya’s new National Congress has a total of 200 seats; the remaining 120 seats are reserved for individual candidates.
