“Through its intensive meetings, this conference calls for Libya to return to the monarchy and to activate the independence Constitution that prevailed until the end of August, 1969,” Chairman of the Preparatory Committee of the Conference Ashraf Boduara said.

Boduara stressed the importance of the constitution of independence and its legitimate heir, the Crown Prince Mohammed al-Hassan al-Rida Sonoussi, who must be the legitimate king of Libya.

“This call is a national rescue project after the continuous political failures, Libya’s ongoing crisis and the failure of any party to end the division and deterioration in all sectors of the country,” he said.
