Qadaffi fails to win second African presidency term

Muammar Qadaffi, Libya’s leader, failed in his bid to win a second term as chairman of the African Union, to Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika. Qadaffi  is described by allAfrica after the vote: he “was seen restless and irritated and called an emergency midnight press conference at the summit venue. Qaddafi blasted African leaders and dubbed the AU as a failed institution.” He is now setting his sights on becoming chairman of the Arab League, he told the press conference.
