The Libyan people are disillusioned and have lost faith in their politicians to manage the country effectively. There is now a general sentiment that Libya has to urgently find an alternative way to fix the country or face pandemonium.
We might not hear much about it, but on important issues, especially those related to foreign policy, I've seen members of both parties work together to change the course of history. America's support for the pro-democracy movement in Libya is one great example.
For all of the good cheer on election day, there were sad reminders that the Transitional National Council remains locked in a bitter contest with unruly, violent-prone militias and tribal gunmen who continue to roam vast swaths of Libya, refusing to lay down their arms.
In redefining its positive constitutional order, will Libya continue to take the path of vengeance along the lines of Iran, or can it adopt an orientation toward tolerance, and republican-style secularism, more akin to Turkey?
