A central Indiana man of Libyan descent says Gadhafi’s death means a bright future for Libya.
Indianapolis engineer Ali Abufares says he and loved ones back in Libya are jubilant over the death of Moammar Gadhafi and the end of Gadhafi rule paves the way for democracy.
“They’re a very civilized group of people who are in charge now, and the Libyan people at large, they’re very civilized and very advanced to the point that if they needed help, I’m sure they’d seek help from whomever they see fit,” he says.
Abufares does not believe another dictator will takeover. He says the Libyan people will set up a transitional government and draft a constitution for democracy.
“We’ve had thousands of people die for the sake of having a democratic country and democratic government, and that’s what they’re working on,” Abufares says.
