not up to date[edit]

It is not up to date anymore. 1.With the coup, the parties who wanted to boytcot the elections did not want this anymore. 2. A lot of changed now. (talk) 12:28, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Added comment:

The information in this article is very useful in understanding the events that led to the military coup. The constitutional court dismissed the elected parliament, rejected the law passed by the Shura Council that would have set new elections for June 2013, forcing postponement until October, and now (post coup) has canceled elections indefinitely. The head of the constitutional court now sits as interim president. In additional to a military coup, democracy in Egypt has also suffered a "judicial coup".

In making revisions to wiki, the historical information relating to the judicial coup in Egypt should be retained somewhere. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:33, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

I've updated it, though as far as I know, the anti-coup coalition hasn't released a statement explicitly saying they will not participate in elections.David O. Johnson (talk) 05:25, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Number of seats?[edit]

The Egyptian parliament will have 596 total MPs, though only 568 will be elected (per [1]). Which number should we use for the section of the infobox (of each political party) that indicates how many seats that party holds? David O. Johnson (talk) 03:49, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

I'll use the 568 seat total because only those are elected.David O. Johnson (talk) 18:56, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Source of voting figures?[edit]

What is the source of the voting figures given in this article? They must be sourced or they will be deleted. Intelligent Mr Toad 2 (talk) 00:03, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

They were taken from the Arabic version of this page [2]; I added the refs and ran reFill to fix the bare URLs. David O. Johnson (talk) 01:11, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
First, I believe it is a rule that Wikipedia can't be used as a reference for itself. Second, I looked at both the references given by the Arabic page and neither of them contain the figures given here. Third, when I google those figures, I find they exist nowhere on the accessible web except at Wikipedia. Intelligent Mr Toad 2 (talk) 03:21, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
This page [3] gives the number of candidates, as well as the number of candidates that made it to the run off. I'm not sure where the number of votes comes from. Should we just scrap the table? David O. Johnson (talk) 03:58, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
I assume whoever added the figures to the Arabic Wikipedia got them from a media source which is not online. They don't come from the Egyptian government elections website, which has posted no figures. The figures are probably genuine, but they're not properly sourced and should be deleted. But I'm not going to delete them. :) I actually want to find the source of the figures, not start an edit war. Intelligent Mr Toad 2 (talk) 05:04, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Good idea; I'll ping the user who added the figures and see what they say.David O. Johnson (talk) 07:06, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

@Drüfft: What's your source for the total number of votes per party on the Egyptian_parliamentary election, 2015#First_phase article? David O. Johnson (talk) 07:06, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Um - we already know that Drüfft got the figures from the Arabic Wikipedia. We need to ask the person who added the figures to the Arabic Wikipedia. Intelligent Mr Toad 2 (talk) 10:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

I see what you mean. David O. Johnson (talk) 16:50, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Second Round[edit]

Anyone has the results of the second round of the elections? Can we please post them here? Thanks. -- (talk) 21:30, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

I agree. Where are the final results @User:David O. Johnson -- (talk) 18:25, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
I haven't seen anything from the usual English sources. David O. Johnson (talk) 22:03, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
There's this [4], but it isn't too specific. David O. Johnson (talk) 22:50, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Where are the results?[edit]

The elections began in October but there are still no results as of end of 2015. @David O. Johnson:--Kaperndie (talk) 17:00, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

I haven't seen any English sources with the results, myself.David O. Johnson (talk) 22:26, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
We might be able to cobble together the results using different sources, e.g. [5], [6] and others. David O. Johnson (talk) 06:39, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
There's a source here [7] with the complete seat count. David O. Johnson (talk) 23:36, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Parliament already constituted...[edit]

...and there are still no results for the second round? And how even about the amount of seats? Are the elections faked? Could you add your figures (including the voters' count) for the second round David O. Johnson?-- (talk) 11:20, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

It looks like someone has already added some of the info, though the seat count won't show in the info box since the number of votes and the percentages are currently missing. David O. Johnson (talk) 06:41, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
