Libya’s Fathi Ben Khalifa will replace Algerian Belkacem Lounès as president of the World Amazigh Congress, El Watan reported on Monday (October 3rd). The election was held Sunday night on the Tunisian island of Djerba, at the conclusion of the 6th World Amazigh Congress. Delegations from Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and the Canary Islands, along with representatives of the Touareg community and the Amazigh diaspora in Europe and North America, attended the three-day event.
