Libyan opposition prepares a congress demanding al-Qathafi to give up the authority
Libya, Politics, 6/20/2005
The Libyan opposition holds a conference in London on June 25 and 16 including more than 200 persons aiming at "Pressuring the Libyan leader col. Mu'ammar al-Qathafi to give up the authority."
This is the first conference bringing together all strata of the Libyan opposition, liberal and Islamic sides, according to one organizer Muhammad Bashir Saleh.
The congress aimed at adopting three demands which are al-Qathafi giving up the authorities and his revolutionary, political, military and security authorities, and forming a provisional government to run the country for a period not to exceed one year with the basic mission of returning back the country into constitutional life, and "establishing a democratic constitutional country built on political and cultural pluralism and rotating presidency of the authority," according to the statements of the committee which prepared for the conference.
Saleh, one of the army officers who carried out the military coupe attempt in October 1993, said "it is time for the departure of al-Qathafi after he had spent 36 years in the rule. "He failed in all fields politically and economically and in Libya's relations with the outer world and he is not able to run Libya" Saleh indicated adding that the convening of the conference came "in response to what is taking place in the Libyan street" and has no connection to "foreign pressure on Libya."
