BANI WALID, Libya – Residents of former gaddafi stronghold Bani Walid expressed on Friday hope for the comeback of Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi -son of Libya’s former leader- to politics following rumours of his release from prison.

One local said that Saif al-Islam is the answer to Libya’s enduring political crisis.

“He has the needed experience to lift the country to a better place,” he said. 

Another stated Saif al-Islam should run for office “since he has been pardoned.” 

He added that Saif al-Islam needed “the criminal court to lift the warrants against him, so that he faces no restrictions internally or internationally.”
