Libya delays list of presidential election candidates

Libya’s election commission on Saturday delayed publication of a final list of candidates for a presidential election scheduled in less than two weeks.

Publication of the final candidate list is supposed to mark the formal start of the election campaign, but the election commission did not give a new date for issuing the list.

Rules governing the ballot — which would be the first time a Libyan head of state is chosen by universal suffrage — say the commission should publish the list of candidates two weeks after final court rulings and appeals related to candidacies.
