Mustafa Abdul Jalil or Abdul-Jalil is a Libyan politician who was the Chairman of the National Transitional Council from 5 March 2011 until its dissolution on 8 August 2012. This position meant he was de facto head of state during a transitional period after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi's government in the Libyan civil war, and until the handover of power to the General National Congress. Before the war, Abdul Jalil served as Minister of Justice under Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. He was noted in some news media for his stance against various human rights violations in Libya, although others have expressed a different view and accuse him, for example, of intransigence during the Bulgarian nurses affair.
