Libya Report: Gaddafi for President?

By Richard Galustian - September 25, 2017 at 09:49AM


In a one-on-one interview on Saturday with France 24, Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) Ghassan Salame said Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi can of course be part of the forthcoming political process under the auspices of the United Nations along with other qualified candidates.

Saif Gaddafi, the son of the late Colonel, could become Libya's President, said UN envoy Salame, which suggests the United States and the bulk of the UN have officially or unofficially approved that statement. This is an extraordinary development.

What does this say about the arrest warrants the ICC "kangaroo" Court has unjustly issued against Gaddafi and other Libyans in The Hague?

Importantly Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar, head of the Libyan National Army, has repeatedly stated over the past several months that he would welcome the participation of Saif Gaddafi in Libya's future political process.

"Parliamentary and Presidential elections must be open for all," the UN's Salame said. He added that election laws shouldn't cherry-pick who must or mustn't be part of them, saying Gaddafi-era officials can partake and "I myself held talks with them in public."

"Islamists are a big portion of the current political strife and they will be part of the process, but if we're talking about those that advocate violence, those 'groups' are outside the democratic process," Salame continued.

Meanwhile, from New York, Salame announced his action plan for Libya, which he said will have three stages that will see Libya going forward toward Presidential elections.

The disjointed nature of those working to bring peace to Libya could not have been more apparent than when viewing the address by Faiz Serraj to the UNGA also in New York last week, where the re-titled former Prime Minister, now calling himself President of the UN-recognized Government of Libya, gave a totally different, and very questionable, picture of the facts in Libya.

In the speech, Serraj spoke of taking personal credit for "progress" in the country. What progress is he talking about exactly? Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) was responsible for two main achievements: the liberation of Benghazi and the retaking of the oil terminals in the oil crescent. Both of these were Haftar's LNA successes not Serraj nor the UN self styled Government for Libya, the GNA.

The GNA is now down to three men, chosen only by the UN, who have no control over the Libyan National Army or any other institution. It does pay mercenaries calling themselves militias to protect those three men's movements, but that's as far as it goes. Serraj is a man who in fact represents no one but himself and his two friends, who in turn are appointed and controlled solely by the UN.

For those who want to watch Serraj's UNGA address, it is available on You Tube. Seeing is believing.

In the meantime, what would the US make of its Libya "regime change" if the result was another Gaddafi in charge?
