US Ambassador: Several LPDF members tried to insert “poison pills” to ensure elections will not happen

LIBYA – The American Special Envoy and Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, said several members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) appear to be trying to insert “poison pills” to ensure elections will not happen.

“We have watched the LPDF meetings this week in Geneva closely, including several members who appear to be trying to insert “poison pills” that will ensure elections will not happen — either by prolonging the constitutional process or by creating new conditions that must be met for elections to occur,” Norland said, according to the US Embassy in Libya.

“Some of these individuals claim to be working on behalf of political leaders who have given the United States clear assurances that they support elections on December 24,” U.S. Embassy in Libya quoted Norland.
