Tripoli: The civil war-torn African country of Libya has taken a new turn in politics, with the son of former ruler Muammar Gaddafi making a big decision.
According to foreign media reports, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of former ruler Muammar Gaddafi, has started considering contesting the presidential election. In this regard, Saif al-Islam has started contacts with Western countries.
According to local media, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi has pledged to work for national reconciliation, acceptance of others and reconstruction of the country, with a focus on establishing a president and a government for stability in the country. ۔
Saif al-Islam was considered the country’s second-most powerful figure, despite not holding any public office in the Libyan government during his father’s presidency.
Saif has always denied that he wants to inherit his father’s power, saying that power is not a field to be inherited. He also called for political reform in his father’s time. And that was the subject of his doctoral dissertation, which he obtained from the London School of Economics.
Observers believe that if he goes to the polls now, he could benefit from his father’s legacy, as law and order has not been fully restored in Libya since Muammar Gaddafi.
