Two sons of Gaddafi propose plan to end crisis
Two sons of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have reportedly proposed a transition to a constitutional democracy that would include their father's removal from power. The New York Times cites on Monday a Libyan official as saying the transition would be spearheaded by Gaddafi's son, Seif al-Islam.
One person close to the sons said the father appeared ready to accept the deal, the paper noted. The two sons "want to move toward change for the country" without their father, the Times quoted one person close to the Seif and Saadi camp as saying.
According to the Times, the idea may reflect longstanding differences among Gaddafi's sons.
While Seif and Saadi have leaned toward Western-style economic and political openings, Colonel Gaddafi's sons Khamis and Mutuassim are considered hard-liners, the paper said.
