In February 2011, a popular uprising against the Col. Muammar Kadhafi regime broke out. It soon turned into a civil war and led to the fall of the Col. Muammar Kadhafi regime. The Transitional National Council established itself in March and was recognized by the General Assembly of the United Nations on October 16, 2011 as the legitimate representative of the Libyan people until a new government is formed.

On August 3, 2011, the Transitional National Council issued a Constitutional Declaration as the basis for its governance during Libya’s transitional stage until the adoption of a new constitution and the election of a new government.

The Constitutional Declaration provides for the legislative, executive and judiciary powers. Article (8) guarantees to every citizen the right to intellectual and private property.
