After a Coup d'Etat on 2010-07-23, a Provisional Government was set up. On 2011-02-21, it was replaced by an Interim Government of neutral professionals, led by a veterinarian. Democratic elections of a new Parliament and Government were carried out in May 2011, resulting in a coalition government of liberal Islamic parties and the Trader Alliance.
In 2013, the Light! Movement gained a foothold, supported by the youth, but in contrast to the Shiat al Nur movement in the Jamahiriya Murwillumbah, it remained peaceful, demonstrating for education and against religion. In 2015, the Knowledge and Discipline Party (KDP), the strongest Islamic party, has formed a coalition with Light! and the Trader Alliance to guarantee stability.
