he son of ex-head of Libya Saif al-Islam Gaddafi intends to participate in the presidential election. This was stated on Sunday by the spokesman of the Gaddafi family Basem al-Hashimi al-Sul to the English-language Egyptian magazine Egypt Today.
     “Saif al-Islam Gaddafi will run for the upcoming presidential election, which may take place in mid-2018,” he said, adding that the future candidate will submit his program soon. According to the spokesman, the procedure will include “the procedures that Saif al-Islam hopes will be approved by the UN and that can help Libya move from the current transition period to stability.”

Gaddafi’s lawyer Khaled Al-Zaidi told Al Arabiya TV that Gaddafi’s son is involved in the life of the Libyan society, maintains contacts with public figures and leaders of the Libyan tribes in order to form a comprehensive program.

Saif al-Islam, 44, the eldest son of Muammar Gaddafi from his second marriage, was considered by his father as a probable successor. He is an architect and engineer by training, studied in Austria and the UK. He graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he was awarded a Ph.D. He headed an international charity fund named after his father.
