'Secular and liberal alliance' emerges as largest bloc following Libyan elections
Washington, July 18 (ANI): The final Libyan election results show a 'secular, liberal alliance' placed as first in the nation's first free poll in decades.
The election commission said that former interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril's National Forces Alliance won 39 seats, while the Muslim Brotherhood's Justice and Construction party came in second with 17 seats among those allocated for parties.
According to Fox News, it was a rare Arab Spring setback for Islamists, who won elections in Egypt and Tunisia, but still stand a chance to share rule.
The results showed that the balance of power now lies with the remaining 120 seats allocated for independent candidates, whose affiliations are not clear.
The election commission claimed that 62 percent of registered voters took part July 7 in the first election after Moammar Gadhafi's 42-year reign ended last year in a civil war. (ANI)
