Gadhafi Advises U.S. Power Sharing

Monday, 27 November 2000 12:00 AM

Gadhafi, in an interview with an Italian television station to be broadcast in the coming days, said resolving the logjammed U.S. presidential election was "a complicated problem."

"For the U.S. to avoid a civil war, power should be split between the presidential candidates," he said. "In case Bush wins, Al Gore could be his deputy and vice-versa."

Qadhafi said: "I advise the American friends to announce this now since this would lead to solving the problem, meaning that the one who wins more votes will be president and the one with less votes will be deputy president."

The Libyan leader reiterated that he does not believe in elections but only in "direct popular democracy, meaning that people rule themselves."

He described the present democracies in the world as "fabricated democracy" and asked how "40 per cent of the people can accept a person they did not elect?"

Gadhafi said there was "no difference between Bush and Gore," saying the problem "lies in the Congress and the imperialist circles."

He said President Clinton was "a nice man but he could not do much for his people because they implicated him in dangerous cases."

He accused the Congress of "ignoring the world and fighting a country without knowing its location," saying, "I am sure the Congress does not know where Kosovo, Libya or Kuwait are located."

Gahdafi said if the Americans take his advice, both Democrats and Republicans will be in power and both have "interests to be in the White House."
