Lybia

Postby SahanGalbeed » Tue Jul 10, 2012 1:53 pm

I don't really like to brag about all the correct predictions I have made throughout my stay here , laakiin I think I was the only guy who supported the Lybian rebels from the begining here .

Al Hamdulilah , things are going okay for them .
The first free elections in Libya have been a substantial success, with the voting passing off without violence and a broad acceptance of the surprising result that the liberal National Forces Alliance, led by former prime minister Mahmoud Jibril, may well win a majority in the parliament.

Jibril has even started to act as a future national leader, calling for all parties to come together for a national dialogue and commenting that there was no loser or winner this week, that “Libya was the real winner of these elections”.

The complicated process of counting is expected to continue over four days, under a complex system in which, out of the 200 seats in national assembly, 80 are reserved for party candidates and 120 for individual representatives, even if many of these people have close ties to the larger parties.

The National Forces Alliance was in the lead in many constituencies in Tripoli, as well as the eastern city of Benghazi, according to unofficial exit polls by Libya Herald.



This was accepted by Mohammad Sawan of the main Islamist party, Justice and Construction, who said: “The National Forces Alliance achieved good results and have a net lead in Tripoli and in Benghazi.”

The exception to this trend was the coastal town of Misrata where a faction of local politicians has done well in the competition to win the four seats from that town.
The elections are far from over, but it is notable that the Islamists have not done well. Preliminary reports suggest that Libya will not follow the same post-Arab Spring route as Egypt or Tunisia, where elections handed power to Islamists.

Some have attributed what seems to have happened in Libya to the personal standings of liberal leader Jibril and his good performance as prime minister in the immediate aftermath of the revolution.

Others have looked to large number of women who were worried that they might lose the high standing that they held under Muammar Gaddafi’s dictatorial but secular regime.

Mucamar al qadafi allayarxamo died Oct 20th 2011. Less than a year later the Lybians have held a successful democratic election . Everybody said , ain't gonna work , this or that will happen , etc..etc..etc..
There is no reason the people of Somalia cannot have theirs as scheduled in Aug 2012 .

Can you tell me when was this date decided upon , I'm talking about the end of the TFG mandate ?
Was it set from the get go , like from the day Sheikh Sharif became the president of the TFG , or was it set while he was in charge .

Elections will eventually take place , for the somali people but there are too many things going on at once it seems to me .

Elections were supposed to happen last August, that was decided when Sheik Shariif became President. However the date was extended last year with the Kampala Accord, that saw the President get a year extension, in exchange for Farmaajo getting the boot.

The particularities to these elections were mostly agreed upon at the Garoowe Conference, and the plan is to follow the Road map that was laid out by the International Community.
