The National Transitional Council promised to hold elections next April to choose a permanent government for the nation ruled by Muammar Gaddafi for 42 years.
Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the TNC chairman made the promise as world leaders prepared to meet to discuss Libya’s future after Gaddafi. “In eight months we will hold legislative and presidential elections,” Mr Jalil said.
“We want a democratic government and a just constitution. Above all we do not wish to continue to be isolated in the world as we have been up to now.”
Mr Jalil and other members of the TNC have said they will not seek office in Libya at the elections, but they will still play a central role in the country’s immediate future.
