Al-Yaqoubi: Those Who Demand the Referendum Display Insanity Over Power and Authority – Al Marsad

Member of the House of Representatives (HoR) and of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF), Sayyeda al-Yaqoubi, said Libyan politicians who are now demanding the referendum on the constitution after they had previously rejected it, display insanity over issues of authority and power.

(LIBYA, 29 May 2021) – The LPDF member Sayyeda al-Yaqoubi said in a post  on her Facebook page that “the insanity of power and influence and control over the reins of affairs, and the entrenchment and need to remain in the political scene are what drives many to adhere to the option of the referendum on the constitution.”

She said the very same members had previously rejected the referendum categorically “under the pretext that the draft was flawed, and yet they [change their minds] overnight and now say elections are not possible without it.”
