Head of HNEC Resigns

The head of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Nuri Elabbar (pictured), has resigned following the elections to the Constitutional Committee, which according to Libya Herald were dogged by boycotts and security breaches.

Only 47 of the 60 seats could be filled.

Elabbar had reportedly been unhappy with the lack of security provided by Congress and the government during the elections, which resulted in disruptions to voting.

Two other senior HNEC officials, Elabbar’s deputy Imad Al-Saih and HNEC member Khaled Al-Sahali, have also submitted their resignations, according to LANA.

Elabbar’s name has been mentioned, along with several others, as a possible replacement for Prime Minister Ali Zeidan.
