Move the condition to a place outside of any brackets.

The code you posted shows that you are still inside, since there is
something like:

plugin.tt_news {
    displayList {

So you should put the condition after the closing bracket and add
"plugin.tt_news" to your setup.

[globalVar = GP:L = 1]

plugin.tt_news {
    displayList {
        date_stdWrap.strftime= %d.%m.%y TEST
        time_stdWrap.strftime= %H:%M TEST
