from our vision:
We believe that all that is happening now in Libya is normal in the movement and development of societies. We believe that the crisis has been prolonged, but we attribute this to the accumulation of thorny issues and issues that have not been properly dealt with, which have led to their complexity. We foresee, however, that there is a seed in social awareness that has been formed, and that it is the one we count on to create the spark of thought that will bring Libya out of the transitional phase into the realm of a modern civil State. We hope and will all work together to make the State of citizenship, rights and social justice effective State in its Arab, African and Mediterranean surroundings. This is the natural framework for Libya in which relations must be built based on common interests, good neighborliness, social and political ties, and work to resolve issues of common interest, such as fighting terrorism and combating illegal immigration, through two tracks: The first track is to preserve national sovereignty, identity and national interest. The second track is close coordination, cooperation, and consideration of regional interests in the region, in order to create a strong regional alliance that serves as an incubator and a safety valve for Libya. On the internal level, we are aware and aware that the crisis is focused on the political aspect more than the economic or social aspect, but it casts a shadow over the entire scene and affects the various paths of life in Libya. By resolving this file, we will have the key to resolving other crises.
The mouthpiece of the Libyan citizen in various cities and regions has become expressive of one and only thing, which is necessary to reach a peaceful and consensual formula and the existence of a state of harmony between the political parties and to unify their efforts in order to lift the country out of the state of division and division, which allows for a steady march towards a stable democratic political process. There will be a peaceful transfer of power under the umbrella of a constitution that is acceptable to all.
The experience of Libyan society forms a kind of consensus on the way to govern in Libya. Everyone has come to reject the centralized state, which is by its nature unable to deal with the issues and problems of citizens in remote areas and peripherie. This has contributed to the existence of marginalized regions whose inhabitants suffer from weak services and a lack of communication with the state apparatus. Citizens now aspire to a decentralized state and a decentralized system of government through which they can make decisions appropriate to their problems, depending on the nature of the region. Each region has its own special characteristics and needs, which are different from other regions. Decentralization also allows citizens to communicate closely with the state in terms of demands and direct accountability of officials.
In order for the constitution to be effective, it must be respected by all. This can only be achieved if the constitution guarantees the rights of all segments of Libyan society, whether cultural, ethnic, or intellectual, with our full belief that Libya is a multicultural State. This adds a special character to Libyan society and distinguishes it from other societies. In order to put this situation in a positive light, these rights must be enshrined in clear and explicit texts, the standard of which is the promotion of the right to citizenship, which will be equal for all Libyans and will provide freedoms and the exercise of rights for all groups, segments, and components of Libyan society.
The peaceful transfer of power is the basis of the democratic process and the civil character of the state, which guarantees the peaceful nature of the political process and makes political competition in its proper and legitimate framework. It is the need to appeal to the opinion of citizens through the ballot boxes, respect opponents through the non-exclusion of any group from the intellectual and political perspective, and to resort to the judiciary, which should be the supreme authority in the desired state. We will work to be independent and to provide it with everything that ensures its efficiency and effectiveness, including financial support, the legislative framework, and the enforcement of the judgments issued by it. To ensure the stability of the political process in the current situation, it is necessary to protect the consensual constitution through a strong and neutral military institution that works to protect the constitution and state institutions without interfering in the political process and ensure its neutrality in the experiences of the past, which we are reaping in the results.
The hope is that Libya is rich in resources and has a homogeneous social fabric, and not like countries with sectarian and ideological contradictions. This facilitates the process of bridging the gaps because all the existing differences are generated in a field that is not related to the detailed issues that cannot be resolved but are related to points of view. This is something that can be agreed upon through dialog between the various segments of Libyan society without excluding anyone.
