Libya's election commission has excluded 25 of the 98 registered presidential candidates for the Dec. 24 election through a preliminary process, a source at the commission said on Wednesday.

The commission is expected later on Wednesday to release the full list of names it deemed eligible to stand in the election pending an appeal process in which the final decision will rest with Libya's judiciary.
