On Christmas Day 1989, Romania’s president and the country’s last communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu, along with his wife Elena, were publicly executed by firing squad after nearly a quarter century in power.

Gaddafi’s ideas were and still cause widespread controversy in public opinion, especially the theory of the Jamahiriya, which he tried to explain as a system of government that is neither a monarchy nor a republic, but rather a system of rule by the masses themselves, stressing that it is neither a president nor a ruler, but rather the people who govern themselves through conferences. The people, which are the source of legislation, and the revolutionary committees, which are the executive body.
However, in the end, the matter ended with the disruption of all state agencies, and all the levers of power, wealth, influence and political thinking were in the hands of Gaddafi and a few members of his family and his cronies.
