Libyan Rebels Face Daunting Task: Building A Government

The difficulty Libyan rebels are having moving their leaders to Tripoli from their temporary capital in Benghazi pales in comparison to the daunting task they face trying to set up a new, post-Gadhafi government. Continued fighting in Tripoli and elsewhere in Libya are hampering efforts to set up an interim government in the next two weeks as planned.

Libyans also have to build from scratch many institutions that are key to creating any meaningful democracy.
