World powers will keep using sanctions weapon for a successful Election Day
World powers will push for sanctions against anyone who disrupts Libya’s political transition, their leaders agreed at a Paris conference on Friday aimed at ensuring the country sticks to a plan to hold elections in December.
The Paris meeting, which included the leaders of Libya, France, Germany, Italy and Egypt, as well as the US vice president, was intended to cement backing for the planned December vote and efforts to remove foreign forces.
Leaders in Paris decided “that individuals or entities, inside or outside of Libya, who might attempt to obstruct, undermine, manipulate or falsify the electoral process and the political transition” could face sanctions.
