Nouri Abusahmain 25%


Cairo, Asharq Al-Awsat—Nouri Abusahmain is the newly elected president of the Libyan General National Congress (GNC), making him the country’s interim head of state during the current transitional period.


Speaking exclusively to Asharq Al-Awsat, Abusahmain spoke about the difficult situation that Libya finds itself in, the security unrest, and attempts by former Gaddafi regime figures to foment chaos on the domestic scene. Despite all this, the interim Libyan head of state stressed that the country’s authorities and security apparatus are more than capable of handing the situation.


Libya’s first Berber leader also denied having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, emphasizing that he has always been an independent politician and he is prepared to work with any Libyan political forces, so long as this serves the country’s interests.


This interview has been edited for length.


Asharq Al-Awsat: As the most senior official in Libya, what’s your view of the current situation in the country?

Nouri Abusahmain: We must acknowledge that this is an exceptional phase. Security conditions are changing from day to day and can sometimes reach a level of serious concern. In general, though, there is less to worry about than we think. A certain level of chaos or security breakdown is expected from time to time, but things in general are under the state’s control, and people are generally at ease in this regard. We are following events. Surprises could happen here or there—bad things could happen in Tripoli, Benghazi or the South—but everything is under state control and is not resulting in chaos on the national level.


Q: Do you think the average Libyan citizen shares your optimism and confidence regarding the a. ility of the military and security apparatus to take care of things?
