Whoever does not hurry up to bless the government, which was firstly announced on air in Skhirat, Morocco and fell short of all expectations, is thus considered an obstacle to the dialogue!

Even the dialogue participants were astonished by the surprise! Whoever does not support and back the government is a hardliner and does not work for the interest of Libya!

I ask the members of the GNC! Where are the constants from which you set out for the dialogue? Are any of them still there?
