A spokesperson for the son of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said Saif Al-Islam al Gaddafi would bring stability to Libya if elected president, speaking from Tunis, in Tunisia, on Thursday.
Spokesperson Ayman Mohammed Abu Ras stated that Saif Al-Islam al Gaddafi "will officially announce his candidacy when the Supreme Electoral Commission opens the door, to run for the post of head of state, or in the parliamentary elections."
Libya reportedly plans to hold a presidential election later this year.
Abu Ras also commented on the investigation into former French President Nicolas Sarkozy over allegations of illegal election campaign financing received from Muammar Gaddafi's government. He said: "they should have detained him long ago because since 2007 the French state has known very well how Sarkozy dealt with the Libyan regime and how much [he] benefited from it and why [he] revolted against the Libyan regime to hide facts."
