The other faction said to be doing well is the Justice and Construction Party (JCP), a Muslim Brotherhood tied organization modeled after Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party. Their leader is former political prisoner Mohamed Sowan from Misrata. The JCP’s leadership has expressed doubts about a centralized government, and seems to have strong support among expats who returned after the 2011 war. Abdulhakim Belhaj’s party, al-Watan, seems a distant third.
Final results won’t be released for several more days, but preliminary estimates are that the JCP will secure less than 25% of the overall seats, a big drop considering they were initially predicting over 60%.
