The Transitional National Council, to power in Libya , adopted Tuesday, April 24 a law on political parties, the first of its kind since 1964, banning political parties based on religious or tribal members according to the CNT.
"A key requirement [for the formation of parties] is that they should not be based on regional considerations, tribal or religious, they are not an extension of going abroad and they are not funded from abroad, "said a member of the CNT, Moustapha Landi .
Another member of the CNT, Fathi Baaja , this law does not moderate Islamists, but excludes the radical Islamists who "follow a policy of exclusion of others. " Legislation passed requires a minimum of 250 founding members from each party and created a hundred members of any other "political entity", he added without giving further details.
PROPAGATION OF NEW PARTY
April 11, the Election Commission in Libya called for the adoption as soon as possible of the law on the formation of political parties so that the elections of the Constituent Assembly, scheduled for June, may be held on time.
During the decades of the reign of Muammar Gaddafi , over and killed last October, any type of organization for political purposes was banned in Libya. There is no law governing the creation date of the political parties, but the new formations are increasing since the fall of Gaddafi, in order to participate in the election of the Constituent Assembly.
" ISLAM MODERATE "
Since early spring Arab Islamists were the big winners in the elections, especially in Tunisia and Egypt , the two Mediterranean countries that surround Libya. A similar result is expected in June, at the election of a constituent assembly.
Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, which represent the main political force previously had announced their intention not to participate directly in politics and focus their activities on the social , but called their members to create parties.
Thus, a representative of the Brotherhood was elected in early March at the head of the Party for Justice and construction, advocating a "moderate Islam".
