The interview of Abdurrazaq Mukhtar in World Newspaper:
You have been in a troubled period.Whats the final situation?
Yes it was a tough time for us.The Governments have changed.There were security problems.But now is built the National Reconciliation Government of Libya and is fully supported by the international society too.A new period has started.
5 years have passed since Kaddafi. How can you summarize the new Libya?
The biggest efficiency of the new revolution was the end of Kaddafi regime and the citizens of Libya to begin to feel the freedom. Of course, after the revolutions no matter where it is are instabilities happening. We expected that Libya will go further on after the revolution but unfortunately the opposite happened.Libya went through a period of regression but has a strong social, national and religious form.In Kaddafi’s time, there werent in Libya institutions, private sector or establishment culture. There was a crook security form which secured just its own institution and the regime.
The regular citizens were seen as enemies. Police didn’t have enough power.That’s why we had security problems and still have it. Its of course a big geographical country. There is now freedom but the most important thing is that we have to learn to use this freedom as a responsibilty. This means everybody is equal against the law. The responsibility culture will develop with the institutions made by the new government.
We have to focus on the private sector and have to encourage the entrepreneurship.Within the private and public sectors can big businesses succeed.
