The names of those who did not go to the polls together with Seif al-Islam Gaddafi are not disclosed, there is no information on this on the website of the election commission.

On November 22, the military prosecutor under the Ministry of Defense of the Government of National Unity of Libya appealed to the CEC with a request not to register the Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar and Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, in the elections. Mr. Haftar was nominated on November 16, Seif al-Islam Gaddafi – on November 14.

Parliamentary and presidential elections in Libya are to be held on December 24, but for this it is necessary to pass the appropriate laws. The State Council did not approve the norms proposed by the parliament, and primarily because it did not give an opportunity to nominate Mr. Haftar. The State Council called for postponing the elections until 2023.
