Libya renamed “State of Libya”

Libya's General National Congress (GNC) has voted to officially call the country the "State of Libya", at least until the approval of the new constitution.

According to a report by the state news agency LANA, the new name was adopted unanimously by GNC members, and it will be used in all documents, slogans, passports, identity cards and all official transactions.

Libya Herald says the decision brings to an end the multiplicity of official names that the previous regime had used over the 42 years since the 1969 coup, including: the Libyan Arab Republic, the United Arab Republic, the Socialist Peoples Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and the Great Socialist Peoples Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.
