Libyan political parties commit to promoting democracy
On February 25, six Libyan national political parties and political organizations signed the Libyan Political Charter. In the charter the parties commit to promoting a democratic political life that ensures the peaceful circulation of power, the renunciation of violence and the policy of exclusion, marginalization, alienation and domination.
The charter is based on a joint belief that political parties and political organizations are the basic instrument for building a democratic state.
This is the culmination of a more than two-year effort in which a number of general principles have been agreed upon. The national political parties and political organizations that first signed on to the charter call on other Libyan political parties and political organizations to join them in affirming the principles it contains.
The parties signed the charter at a time when Libya is experiencing a political division that has led to the deterioration of life conditions and increased the suffering of the citizens.
CMI has over the past three years facilitated dialogue between political parties.
