ABSTRACT
The article examines the results of Libya's first free elections in 2012 wherein the political parties of Islamic fundamentalists faltered. The dominant party coalition is led by former Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, who abhors ideology and prefers to talk about creativity. Libya's Muslim Brotherhood lost allegedly due to Libyans' view that it originated from Egypt.
