Washington is against allowing Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of late leader Muammar Gaddafi, to run for president in the upcoming elections, while Moscow insists on his participation, said Khaled al-Mishri, the chairman of the High Council of State.
Speaking to a local T.V. channel on Friday, al-Mishri denounced foreign interference in the elections, which he said “had reached an unacceptable level.”
The Council’s chairman accused “foreign parties” of pressuring the Council, the High National Election Commission (HNEC) and the House of Representatives to hold elections “with flawed laws.”
Al-Mishri also denied rumors that claim he made a deal with presidential candidates Aguila Saleh and Fathi Bashagha about forming a new authority.
