See article published site “National Interest” American (National Interest) that constitutional monarchy will be savior of Libya from chaos experienced by now, pointing out that potential king not dispute.
The author of the article, Shlomo Gesner, president and co-founder of the “Cambridge Forum for the Middle East and North Africa” in London, explains that the Libyan constitution of 1951 provided wide political and social freedoms to its people, and the parliamentary system was based on universal adult suffrage, at a time when Switzerland did not allow that The liberal beacon in the heart of Europe, for women to vote in federal elections.

Concord between the Libyans
Jessner noted that Libya since 2011 has been torn apart by internal conflict, which is not surprising, he says, in a society divided into 140 main tribes and a large number of sub-tribes, and the political forces seem irreconcilable in a country with a lot of oil wealth. .
Gesner continues, saying that the political situation remains fragile with the approach of the national elections on December 24, and it is unlikely that the National Unity Government and the outgoing Presidential Council would dissolve themselves peacefully before those elections.
He stated that it is clear that what Libya currently needs is a person, a leader, or a government, around whom the people will rally, and it is encouraging that those who struggle for the “return of constitutional legitimacy” were real popular movements, and that tribal leaders and politicians also accept the idea of restoring Establishment of a constitutional monarchy.
The symbol of the unity of the Libyans
The writer went on to say that the monarchy was a symbol of unity, supported by the popularity of King Idris and the Al-Senussi family, and it could happen again today. William H. Lewis, a specialist in regional affairs, was quoted as saying that Idris’ political priority was inevitable due to his acceptance among most Libyan political factions and competing groups as a middle candidate and a political figure without any agenda of his own.
He explained that Idris died in 1983, and his nephew and crown prince, Hassan Al-Senussi, died of a heart attack 9 years later in London at the age of 65. Before his death, Hassan Mohamed, his second son, was appointed head of the royal house in Libya. The Libyan royalists consider Muhammad to be the legitimate heir, and in 2011 he appeared in the European Parliament and expressed his preference for restoring the 1951 constitution, and that it would be the best option for Libya.
He added that the fact that Muhammad has been in exile since 1988 would also not have his own agenda, and the same could not be said of many in Libya, and he would remain above the conflict of corrupt and divisive politicians, to be a focal point for national unity that would transcend tribalism and religious issues.
The writer concluded his article by saying that the return of the constitutional monarchy to Libya may once again encourage Libyans to think of themselves as Libyans before thinking of themselves as belonging to a particular tribal group, as the North African Post urged the United Nations to “give Libya a chance.” constitutional monarchy.
