Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi's son, Seif al-Islam, has called for internationally supervised elections as a way to end the conflict in the North African nation.

In an interview with Italian Corriere della Sera newspaper in the capital Tripoli on Thursday, Seif al-Islam said, “Elections is the only painless way to exit from the impasse in Libya," AFP reported.

“We could hold them within three months. At most by the end of the year. And the guarantee of transparency could be the presence of international observers," the 38-year-old Seif al-Islam said.

He added that the elections could be supervised by the European Union or the African Union, the United Nations or even NATO.

Seif al-Islam noted that he was certain in a victory for his father at the ballot box.

“What is important is that we have a clean vote ... The world will then discover how popular Gaddafi still is in his country," he said.

Dozens of Libyan officials have fled the country since February when a popular uprising against Gaddafi's dictatorship began.
