The results of Libya's first national vote since 1965 have come in: the secular Alliance of National Forces led by ex-interim prime minister Mahmoud Jibril has unexpectedly trounced the Islamist parties, and looks set to play a key role in the next government.
Libya has once more taken its own path in the Arab Spring. The first Arab uprising to have used military force to oust the government, Libya now became the first Arab country where voters rejected Islamist parties in the elections held after the fall of the old regime.
Why did Libya's Muslim Brotherhood fail to replicate the success of its counterpart in Egypt, and are we any closer to seeing a stable government in Libya?
