PARIS - Muammar Gaddafi could remain in Libya if he relinquishes power, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Wednesday, in what appeared to be a fresh drive to find a political solution to the dragging conflict.

Juppe, asked during an interview on LCI television whether countries involved in the Libyan crisis could consider letting Gaddafi remain as part of a way out of the crisis, replied:

"One of the scenarios effectively envisaged is that he stays in Libya on one condition which I repeat -- that he very clearly steps aside from Libyan political life."

"A ceasefire depends on Gaddafi committing clearly and formally to surrender his military and civilian roles," said Juppe.
