Gadhafi's son leaves politics

Gadhafi's son leaves politics

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's son says he will no longer be involved politics, defying long held expectations that he would succeed his father.
Seif al-Islam Gadhafi addressed thousands of young Libyans in the southern city of Sabha Thursday, in an address carried on television.
Gadhafi described Arab nations as "living in a forest of dictatorships" and called for a democratic transformation for Libya.
While the young Gadhafi does not have an official post, he has directed economic reforms. He was expected to take power after his 66-year-old father steps down or dies.
Gadhafi played a major role in recent talks restoring Libya's ties with the West and the United states after decades of isolation.
