Libya's General National Council assembly (GNC) voted on Wednesday, December 4 to make Islamic Sharia law the base for all legislation and for all state institutions, a decision that may impact banking, criminal and financial law, according to Reuters.No doubt about that. But will there come an uprising like what brought down Mohammed Morsi? Maybe, but for now, don't be too sure.
"Islamic law is the source of legislation in Libya," the GNC said in a statement after the vote. "All state institutions need to comply with this."
The immediate scope of the decision was not clear, but a special committee would review all existing laws to guarantee they comply with Sharia.
