Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya announced Wednesday that it began forming its own list for Tripoli's upcoming municipal elections, criticizing what it described as "the division of spoils" by some factions of the city that are trying to create a consensus ticket.Nafeh stressed that Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya has been keenly monitoring power-sharing efforts and had decided to form its own list composed of the city's Islamist factions and delegates representing Tripoli's myriad sects and inclinations.Civil society factions have also rejected the tradition of creating a compromise ticket, and insist on waging a democratic battle against any list put forward by the traditional political powers.
