Next Steps for Libya

The Libyan National Transitional Council today declared Libya liberated from the Gaddafi regime and set the country on a path toward multiparty elections and a democratic constitution.  Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told the World Economic Forum yesterday that the NTC will set elections for a transitional national congress within 8 months.  The body will draft a new constitution, to be put to Libyans in a referendum, and form an interim government until the first presidential elections are held.  For more, check out reports from Al JazeeraReuters, allAfrica.com, and the Gulf Times.

Whatever the NTC and the new congress come up with, it'll surely be an improvement over Gadhafi's home-made rambling handbook on governance, the Green Book.
