    Libya election success for secularist Jibril's bloc

    Results from Libya's first elections since the overthrow of Col Gaddafi have shown gains for an alliance of parties seen as broadly secular.
    The National Forces Alliance, led by ex-interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, has won 39 out of 80 seats reserved for political parties.
    The Muslim Brotherhood's party has gained 17.

    The 200-member General National Assembly will also include dozens of independent candidates. The overall orientation that the assembly will have is so far unclear.

    What remains to be seen is who, if anyone, will lead the assembly by majority.
