The United States presidential election of 2016, scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will be the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. Voters will select presidential electors who in turn will elect a new president and vice president through the Electoral College. The term limit established in the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents the incumbent President, Barack Obama, of the Democratic Party, from being elected to a third term. The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses is taking place between February 1 and June 2016, staggered among the 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. This nominating process is also an indirect election, where voters cast ballots for a slate of delegates to a political party's nominating convention, who then in turn elect their party's presidential nominee.
n the Republican race, Ted Cruz, a firebrand conservative senator, won his home state of Texas and Oklahoma and Marco Rubio, a favorite of the Republican establishment, won in Minnesota for his first victory. Both are seeking to break out as Trump’s main rival. Cruz desperately needed the Texas win in order to stay in the race. Still, Trump’s wins in the South were a blow to Cruz, who once saw the region as his opportunity to put himself on a path to the nomination. Instead, he’s watched Trump, a brash New York real estate mogul, display surprising strength with the region’s evangelical Christians and social conservatives. Rubio’s win in Minnesota gave him a boost on an otherwise disappointing night. His long—shot hopes now rest with his home state, Florida, which votes on March 15, but polls show him trailing Trump there. Trump won in Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Georgia. The race in Alaska has not been called. Trump has stunned the Republican political establishment by emerging as the clear front—runner, winning three of the four contests preceding Super Tuesday. He has seized on the anxieties of voters angry at Washington and worried about terrorism, immigration and an uncertain economy. Using simple terms, and often coarse language, he has soared to the top of polls with his pledge to “make America great again.”
General Posts and Telecommunications Company (GPTC) is the state-owned organisation responsible for overseeing all postal and telecommunication services in Libya. This includes fixed telephony, satellite communications, mobile telephony (in partnership with Al Madar and Libyana Mobile Phone) and other Libyan internet service providers. The company was established in 1984 with 70 telecom offices and 340 postal offices and 8 postal distributions centers, with the main post office is located in Tripoli. Libya has been a UPU member since 1952. The company is the main internet provider in Libya, and it cut internet connections between Libya and the rest of the world very shortly after the beginning of the protests against the Gaddafi regime that would result in the Libyan Civil War currently in progress. Internet was restored 21 August 2011. In 2013, a 'Official' Court order was called in to bar users from browsing pornographic material. While the rule applies on censoring pornographic sites, it has been found that Internet filters have blocked other websites, including some that may have been omitted due to political nature. There have been protests regarding the censorship, however these protests appear to have been ignored. Due to lacking security and recent activist and Journalist assassinations and kidnappings, people have found it to be unsafe to recite their rights of freedom of speech. The main internet service provider 'Libya Telecom technology' has released a statement regarding the new filter system on their Facebook page, this page can be found via google search keyword 'LTT Filter'.
