The rebel Transitional National Council of Libya is more democratic than the Qadhafi regime and represents a wide spectrum of the country, the Obama Administration has said.
“This is obviously not the democratic end state that we’re looking for in Libya, nor is it the democratic end state that the TNC itself is looking for. TNC has set itself on a road map that leads to elections and leads to the right of every Libyan to vote for their leadership. That’s what we all want to see,” State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland said.
“In the interim, and until we get to that point, and to improve the situation that Libyans have had under the dictator Qadhafi, this is more democratic than they’ve had in the past in the sense that the TNC as a whole increasingly represents a broader cross-section of Libyans. It is growing; it is broadening geographically in terms of the types of Libyans who are represented in it,” she told reporters.
The TNC has been handed over the Libyan Embassy in Washington but is yet to formally become operational, she said, adding it had a shock with killing of defence minister.
“I think what we see is an effort by the TNC to take a hard look at itself and to make an important step forward that can reassure Libyans that in reshuffling the government, that they have a truly democratic and a truly transparent leadership group,” she said.
