In an interview yesterday with Alhurra’s Free Hour program, the Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan stated that he hopes Libya regains its status within the international community in two years. He expressed his reservations about the proposed “political isolation law,” warning that it might exclude the majority of the Libyan people.
Alhurra’s Mohamed Al-Yahyai, host of Eye on Democracy, interviewed Libya’s Prime Minister Ali Zaidan, who was a Geneva-based human-rights lawyer before the revolution, to discuss major issues facing the new interim government. During the hour-long interview, Prime Minister Zaidan talked about the achievements of the Libyan revolution characterizing them as truly significant. He noted “injustice and the state of tyranny and totalitarianism are over and the public will is realized.” He went on to say that calls for protest against the government’s policies are limited. He said that 90 percent of Libyans support the government.
