As Libya's opposition movement looks towards what they hope will be a future without Muammar Gaddafi, many are sizing up the daunting challenges they will face in governing and unifying the country. In an exclusive interview with CCTV, the Vice-Chairman of the opposition National Transitional Council lays out their plans for filling the post-Gaddafi power vacuum.

Abdul Hafiz Ghoga, Vice-Chairman of Libyan NTC, said, "We want to build a democracy, where the opinion of everyone is taken into account. We will make sure there is rule of law, and we will have a thriving civil society. That's our goal."

The National Transitional Council has vowed to hold free and fair elections once Moammar Ghaddafi leaves power.

Abdul Hafiz Ghoga, Vice-Chairman of Libyan NTC, said, "The National Transitional council will govern until we have established legislative and executive authority in Libya. Then we will hold presidential elections. That's when our job in NTC is done, and we expect this to take no more than 15 months."

The NTC hopes China and Chinese companies can play a leading role in rebuilding a post-Ghaddafi Libya.

Abdul Hafiz Ghoga, Vice-Chairman of Libyan NTC, said, "China is a natural partner in the reconstruction of Libya. During the past four decades, Ghaddafi has destroyed the economy of the country, and weakened the institutions in the society. Libya is in dire need of a major reconstruction plan. We hope China will take actively part in rebuilding Libya."
