Gaddafi’s son will run for president of Libya

Must read

Seif Al-Islam Gadhafi, son of slain Libyan dictator Moamer Gadhafi, has registered to run in the country’s December presidential polls.

A statement by the electoral commission said Kadhafi submitted his candidacy for the presidential election to the High National Electoral Commission office in the city of Sebha.

It said the 49-year old had completed all the required legal conditions and that he was also issued with a voter registration card for the Sebha district.

Libya’s first ever direct presidential poll, with a first round on December 24, is the climax of a process launched last year by the United Nations to draw a line under years of violence since the revolt that toppled dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.
Libya opened registration for candidates on Monday.
