Libyan Parties

Did the Party Registration Committee at the Ministry of Justice deliberately refuse to register several political parties, as several media and social media pages claimed? #Tahra looked closer into these allegations directed against Muhammad Baltamer, a member of the Committee.

According to Colonel Khaled Al-Zawi, who is the Director of Muhammad Baltamer’s office, the only reason for some parties being rejected is the lack of complete documentation. This was confirmed by the founder of the Ya Baladi party, Awad Abdel Sadiq.

Abdullah Naker, head of the Summit Party, affirmed that his party got accredited since 2012, contrary to what these news outlets claimed. Such unsubstantiated claims aim to discredit the electoral process before it even happens.
