Earlier today, Libya's ruling National Transitional Council announced an overhaul of the official list of national non-working public holidays in Libya, beginning in the calendar year 2012.

According to Abdelrazzak al-Aradi, a member of the Libyan National Transitional Council, the aforementioned overhaul of the official list of national non-working public holidays in Libya sees the return of the Libyan Independence Day public holiday, as had been announced, for 2011, last year (2011-12-22).

The overhauled list of Libyan public holidays also confirms the February 17 and October 23 public holidays declared as one-off public holidays last year (2011-02-16 and 2011-10-23) as well as making good on the Libyan government's promise to declare a new annual Martyrs' Day public holiday (2011-09-05).

Finally, the aforementioned announcement specifies which Muslim dates will be observed as non-working public holidays in Libya, and for how many days.
