Muammar Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, is reported to be planning to run for President in the next Libyan elections, according to a spokesperson for the Libyan Popular Front party.
Gaddafi, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC), was sentenced to death in absentia by a court in Tripoli in 2015; he was released from prison in Zintan in June 2017 after the Tobruk-based parliamentpassed an amnesty law, and his current whereabouts are not known.
The Telegraph writes:
"While reviled by many as a symbol of the old order, he retains some support and adds yet more uncertainty to the country’s political turmoil."
