The southern city of Sabha held its municipal council elections on Saturday, while the cities of Sabratha and Surman in the western region postponed the elections under the pretext that the two municipalities are under the authorities of the east-based parallel government, which ordered not to hold any municipal elections.

Polling stations in Sabha opened at 9 am on Saturday and continued to receive voters until 7 pm, according to the Central Committee for Municipal Elections, confirming that the elections were held in a calm and peaceful atmosphere despite the refusal of the security authorities to secure the polling stations.
