All eyes are now on National Transition Council (NTC) in Libya, following the demise of the Gaddafi regime. A week ago I recorded another Middle East Analysis podcast that seeks to examine the challenges it faces.
Inter alia I observed: "The first thing in terms of state building would be to have security. Security is the most important thing. Security is something, I believe, the National Transitional Council has already started applying across the country but I think it will really become possible once Gaddafi is captured. He represents that symbolism of an old regime still lurking in the corridors. So the focus is security, security security. Following that, the Libyans themselves should address the idea of institution building."
