Libyan election commission rejects Gaddafi's son as presidential candidate

Libya's High National Election Commission said on Wednesday that former ruler Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, a major candidate in December's planned presidential election, is ineligible to run, compounding the turmoil surrounding the vote.

Gaddafi was one of 25 candidates disqualified by the commission in an initial decision pending an appeals process that will ultimately be adjudicated by the courts. Some 98 Libyans had originally registered as candidates.
