Since the overthrow of the 41 year dictatorship of Muammar Gadafi, Libya has had a series of failed governments. Today it still has 2 competing ones. The UN and US support the one in Tripoli, Russia and Egypt prefer the last elected Parliament based in the eastern city of Tobruk. But now, a third force might be emerging with the amnesty granted Gadafi’s favorite son Seif al-Islam. Award-winning Libyan journalist Mustafa Fetouri says the younger Gadafi wants power, and could get it and have more popular support than either present government.
