NATIONAL CONGRESS PARTY
Government tampering in national assembly elections in 1952 deprived the National Congress party of its victory. Party stalwarts reacted violently, leading, first, to the expulsion of its founder, Libyan nationalist Bashir Bey Sadawi, from the country and then, soon thereafter, to the demise of party politics in Libya.
