EU Threatens to Impose Sanctions Against Libyan Election Spoilers

The EU has threatened to impose new sanctions on those obstructing either elections or the withdrawal of foreign forces from the country.

The EU’s decision came only two days before a major UN meeting of foreign ministers in Berlin.

The Berlin conference will be attended by the US secretary of state, Antony Blinken.

It aims to follow up the outcomes of the December 2020 meeting that set a detailed roadmap for Libya to take the country towards democracy and end 10 years of civil war.

The EU has earlier welcomed a roadmap drawn up by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), that provides for Parliamentary and Presidential elections on 24 December 2021.

Libya has been torn by a bloody civil war since 2011, following the end of a 40-year-long dictatorship by Muʿammar Gheddafi.

Since then, Libya has been divided between the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli and Haftar’s Libyan National Army in the country’s east.

However, a UN-led process produced a new interim government for Libya that promises free elections by year’s end.
