Libya's ruling National Transitional Council has announced that Wednesday, December 23, 2015, had been declared a non-working public holiday throughout Libya on account of the upcoming annual Mawlid Al-Nabi (Birth of the Prophet) non-working public holiday in Libya.

The aforementioned announcement is in line with the overhaul of Libyan public holidays carried-out 3 years ago (2012-01-08), and the list of official non-working 2015 public holidays in Libya as announced by the Libyan government, late last year (2014-12-22).

In particular, it confirms that Libya is no longer using the Libyan Center for Remote Sensing and Space Science (LCRSS) Islamic Calendar (2007-08-29), and now seems to use a variant of the Saudi Umm-al-Qora Islamic Calendar.
