Gaddafi son offers Libya elections


A son of Muammar Gaddafi has announced that his father is willing to hold elections and step aside if he loses, an offer which could test the unity of the Western alliance trying to force the Libyan leader out.

Saif al-Islam's proposal, which follows a string of concessions offered by Gaddafi that Western powers have dismissed as ploys, came on Thursday amid mounting frustration in some NATO states at the progress of the military campaign.

"They (elections) could be held within three months. At the maximum by the end of the year, and the guarantee of transparency could be the presence of international observers," Saif al-Islam told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
