US ambassador: No tolerance for Libya elections’ spoilers

The United States’ (US) ambassador and special envoy to Libya, Richard Norland, has reaffirmed the need to hold elections in Libya without any arguments, telling Libya Alahrar TV in a televised interview in Paris that Washington won’t tolerate or look away from those who are thinking of impeding elections.

Norland said technical and legal amendments to elections’ laws should be made in consensus among Libyan leaders, explaining that there is a clear plan for the withdrawal of foreign fighters and mercenaries from Libya before and after elections.

On the margins of Paris Conference on Libya Friday, Norland said the US supports the overwhelming majority of Libyans who want to participate in peaceful elections on December 24, stressing that Washington is with a united, stable and sovereign Libya without foreign intervention, while the US Vice President said at the Paris Conference that they are in support of Libyans as they march on to elections in December.
