The political changes can be analyzed through different theoretical approaches and hereby measured their applicability when the research questions are being scrutinized. This paper mainly concerns on the fact why the Gaddafi Regime collapsed. In order to answer the question, we are inevitable required to apply an analytical framework. The theory of good governance is the analytical framework applied. The writers in this paper mainly emphasize on the fact the Libyan community was the one in which the critical changes weren’t inevitable before the revolution happened in February 2011.the policy of good and efficient governance, either in national or above the national level, could have changed the movements in a different way. The research hypothesis is based on the belief that there would have been no revolution or even such rough violence in this African country if he had made a series of reforms in the country based on the factors needed for good governance, especially in distribution area, cooperation, legitimation and interaction above the national levels. So, it seems the changes seen in Libya are due to the infirmity in good governance.
