Lawyers for Justice in Libya supports many of the demands made by the protestors in Benghazi asking the National Transitional Council (NTC) to clarify the remit of its authority and powers. LFJL welcomes the recent statement by the Chairman of the NTC addressing some of these concerns. However, the NTC has yet to meet many of the targets it has set itself previously and many of the promises it has made to the Libyan people.

Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) welcomes the formation of the new Libyan interim government. The formation of the interim government, led by the NTC elected Dr Abdulraheem El-Keeb, marks the first ministerial government to accede to executive power in Libya since 1977. Whilst the formation of the interim government is an important milestone in Libya’s transition from autocracy to democracy, the new interim government must be mindful of its limited remit as it has not been democratically elected and is therefore not a representative government.
