It has been 10 years since the democratization movement called "Arab Spring" that led to the collapse of the dictatorship in Libya in North Africa began.
The country has been divided into east and west and the civil war has continued, but the focus is on getting out of the decade of turmoil with the election of a provisional prime minister earlier this month in a political dialogue led by the United Nations.
In Libya, the 42-year-old dictatorial Kadafi administration collapsed after a demonstration calling for the release of detained human rights activists began on February 15, ten years ago.
After that, clashes between armed groups occurred frequently, and from around 2014, the country split into east and west and fell into a state of civil war, but last year both sides agreed to a ceasefire.
A UN-led political dialogue elected a provisional prime minister this month, with a general and presidential elections scheduled for December.
On the other hand, it has been pointed out that the suspension of military assistance by foreign countries, such as the withdrawal of soldiers and the embargo on weapons, has not been protected as requested by the United Nations.
In the future, the focus will be on how to get out of the 10-year turmoil by promoting the creation of a new nation, such as holding elections smoothly while maintaining a ceasefire.
