The Rebirth of Khaddaffi: How Muammar’s Son Can Win in the Elections
The son of Libyan leader Muammar Khaddaffi (who was executed during the civil war) will be taking part in the presidential elections in 2018. As was reported by the family’s press agency, the forty-four-year-old Saif al-Islam Khaddaffi will soon present his pre-election program, which will include procedures that “he hopes will be approved by the UN and which are capable of helping Libya move away from the current transition period towards stability”.
It became known earlier that Saif al-Islam had been freed from captivity in Zintan. Representatives of the ‘Abu Bakr as-Siddiq’ group (who had been holding the politician), had mentioned earlier that Khaddaffi had been let go through an amnesty which had been declared by the country’s parliament.
