Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, son of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi, called on Libyans, on Thursday, to continue receiving electoral cards, despite the decision to exclude him from the presidential race issued on Wednesday.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi published a handwritten message on his Twitter account, in which he said: “My brothers and sisters, do not humiliate or grieve. God is with us. We all have to continue the process of receiving electoral cards.. with strength.”

On November 18, the Twitter platform closed the account of Gaddafi, the son, hours after opening it, but the closure lasted only a few days, when it returned to work again.

The electoral card is an essential part of the crucial polling process next month, and without it no Libyan would be able to vote. According to official statistics announced by the High Electoral Commission in Libya, the total number of cards that were delivered to voters until November 24, reached more than one million and 962 thousand cards, while the distribution of cards ends on November 28.

Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi’s message came one day after the preliminary decision of the Electoral Commission in Libya to reject his candidacy to run in the presidential elections, scheduled for December 24 next.

However, the decision is not enforceable, as there is a 12-day period before it is approved, and the rejected candidates can appeal the ban.

And local reports in Libya stated that an armed force closed a court in the city of Sabha, southwest of Libya, to prevent Saif al-Islam from submitting an appeal against the decision to disqualify him from running.

The election campaign of Gaddafi’s son had announced earlier that its candidate would appeal the decision of the Libyan Electoral Commission. 98 candidates for the presidential elections submitted their papers to the Libyan Electoral Commission, including two women, but the commission has excluded 25 of them so far.
