Muslim Brotherhood in Libya changes its name to “Revival and Renewal”

In a surprising move, the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya announced that it had transformed into an association called “Renaissance and Renewal,” .

The step comes as a prelude to the Brotherhood’s running in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections. The Brotherhood said that the Renaissance and Renewal Association will fulfill its mission in the Libyan society through tireless work in various fields.

Munir Adeeb, an expert on extremist movements and international terrorism, said that the aim of the Muslim Brotherhood’s decision in Libya is to try to bring themselves back into the political scene after the Libyan people discovered that the group’s agenda was against the state.
