After seizing power in 1969, he abolished the Libyan Constitution of 1951. He established laws based on the political ideology[6] he had formulated, called the Third International Theory and published in The Green Book.[7][8] After establishing the jamahiriya ("state of the masses") system in 1977, he officially stepped down from power and has since then held a largely symbolic role within the country's governance.[2][3] Rising oil prices and extraction in Libya led to increasing revenues. By exporting as much oil per capita as Saudi Arabia and through various welfare programs, Libya achieved the highest living standards in Africa, though not as high as several similarly oil-rich Gulf countries.[9][10] Gaddafi and his relatives have been accused of taking over much of the economy.[citation needed] Gaddafi started several wars and acquired chemical weapons.[11] The United Nations called Libya under Gaddafi a pariah state.[12][13] In the 1980s, countries around the world imposed sanctions against Gaddafi.[14] Six days after the capture of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in 2006 by United States troops,[15] Gaddafi renounced Tripoli's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs and welcomed international inspections to verify that he would follow through on the commitment.[16] A leading advocate for a United States of Africa, he served as Chairperson of the African Union (AU) from 2 February 2009 to 31 January 2010.winter camping gear
