The Constitutional Council unseated Jamali from her Tripoli parliamentary seat on Feb. 21, the result of an appeal by unsuccessful candidate Taha Naji, who ran on MP Faisal Karami's National Dignity list in the May 2018 parliamentary elections.While the court found that Naji had indeed won in the May 2018 national elections -- by a single vote -- it ordered a new election rather than naming him Jamali's replacement. Naji has thus decided to boycott the by-election, while Jamali is running to regain the seat and is considered the heavy favorite.
