Libya’s former Prime Minister, Ali Zeidan has founded a political party called Nidaa Al-Qardabiya. Zeidan’s statements on his Facebook account attested that he recently returned to the country because he believes in the justice of the cause of Libya. He also believes in the necessity of reviving its status among countries, and achieving its rebirth.
Zeidan added that his party will hold internal elections in the coming days, without disclosing whether it will run for the party’s presidency or not, saying only that, “the opportunity is available to everyone.”
The former Prime Minister stressed that his concern is to meet the aspirations of the youth of Libya, and to take care of all segments of society. He pointed out that Libya needs infrastructure, job opportunities for young people, housing, health and economy.
Zeidan denied the accusations against him of looting public funds, describing it as a “dirty rumour.”
The June Berlin Conference II on Libya reiterated the need for immediate “withdrawal of foreign mercenaries from Libya,” to pave way for normalisation of democratic processes.
The conference also called for the Libyan authorities to make the December elections possible; unify the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) and ensure an equitable distribution of oil revenues. These are the main points of the final declaration adopted at the Berlin Conference II on Libya.
