Sabha Court of Appeals ruled Sunday against the appeal of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC) of the motion of appeal by Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi that said he could be listed as presidential candidate contrary to the HNEC disqualification decision.

The ruling on Sunday is final and thus the HNEC is obliged to announce Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi as a candidate for presidential elections on its final list.

Saif Al-Islam's comeback to the presidential race came after a ruling by Sabha court on Thursday.

Earlier on Sunday, the Head of the HNEC, Emad Al-Sayeh, said the HNEC appealed all the motions against it without exception and the rumors about the HNEC appealing certain persons only was meant to mislead the public to win the votes of the people in a misleading electoral campaign.” Al-Sayeh added, denying the news that said the HNEC was only going to appeal Saif Al-Islam's motion.
