The Grand Mufti of Libya, Sheikh Sadiq Al-Gharyani, has described the results of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), which took place in Tunisia, as ‘disheartening’ at the least.

The Mufti explained in his weekly “Islam and Life” program that these conclusions merely confirm that the participants in the UN-led dialogue were disingenuously chosen to represent the Libyan people and that their main concern is solely to achieve their own interests.

He continued that the participants of LPDF were not sincerely considering the referendum on the constitution, nor indeed the end of the transitional phase, due to the fact that it would herald the loss of their own, ‘presently held’ seats.
