Libya Revokes Political Isolation Law

Libya's internationally recognised parliament has reportedly revoked the country's Political Isolation Law (PIL).

The controversial law banned Gaddafi-era officials from taking part in politics, and was often seen as similar to the the de-Baathification law in post-Saddam-era Iraq.

The original bill was passed in May 2013, under pressure from armed groups who surrounded public buildings until it was approved.
