April 3, 2014

According to Magharebia:

“The return of the al-Senussi monarchy is now the solution and guarantee for the return of security and stability to Libya,” Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdelaziz said…

“Contacts have already been made, and we’re in touch with dignitaries and tribal chiefs in Libya, and also with the grandson of King al-Senussi, Prince Mohammed, who lives overseas,” the minister added.

He noted that the 1951 constitution was being reviewed, adding that many believed it was one of the best in the region and world.

“Many tribal sheikhs who lived under monarchy and know it prefer such a system of government,” he said.
