The voting held at the State Supreme Council was broadcast live in the Libyan media.
In addition to Halid el-Mişri, Muhammed Teke, Naci Muhtar, and Naime el-Hami competed in the annual election.
In the first voting, which was attended by 129 out of 145 members of the State Supreme Council, Mishri received 49 votes, Tekkele 39, Muhtar 36 and Hami 4 votes, with one person abstaining.
As none of the candidates won the votes of 66 members in the first round, the second round of voting was started.
In the second ballot held at the State Supreme Council, Muhammed Tekele, who received 67 votes, won the election against Halid Mishri, who received 62 votes.
Mishri, who was first elected as the President of the Libyan State Supreme Council in April 2018, will hand over the task he held for about 5 years to Tekle.
On the other hand, Prime Minister of the Libyan Government of National Reconciliation Abdulhamid ed-Dibeybe congratulated Tekle, who was elected to the Supreme Council of State, in a statement on his social media account.
Dibeybe also urged the State Supreme Council to take part in the realization of the elections that will end the transition process in Libya.
