Whereabouts of the Prime Minister[edit]

Unfortunately, according to an article of the state-run al-Ahram Online, the Egyptian appeals court have dismissed Mr. Hisham Qandil as PM and sentenced him to one year in prison. I'm pretty sure the military may have arrested and detained Mr. Qandil already and the whole cabinet is basically de-facto dissolved. I'm pretty sure there will be a new Prime Minister and new cabinet starting tomorrow or soon. May need to update it as soon as possible. http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/1/64/75629/Egypt/Politics-/Court-upholds-verdict-sacking-Morsis-PM-Qandil,-se.aspx

REQ: IPA pronunciation for Arabic name[edit]

Could an established editor please add the IPA pronunciation for the Arabic name (both the short form and the long form)?

Vice-president and Prime Minister[edit]

Neither have Mohammed ElBaradei nor Ziad Bahaa El-Din been officially appointed for any positions. The positions of vice-president and prime minister are still vacant.

Inconsistent Presentation.[edit]

Hello,

I visited this page on my mobile-phone (smart-phone), curious about the government. Only the the introductory information and the "Names" heading & information is displayed. No "History" heading or information, no "Government" heading or information and all the headings and information subsequent to "Name" are missing, totally missing. Of course I try to refresh my phone, still nothing more than the introduction & "Names". So I check other pages with my mobile, "Libya" displays the whole set of headings & information as do others. Then I go onto my computer, and everything is there on the page as is proper. I go to "Mobile View" and everything is there. So I check my phone again, refresh, nothing underneath the "Names" section. My phone is otherwise working perfectly, and displays other articles just fine, "Libya" shows consistent information between phone and computer. I do not know how to fix this, and am certain it is not a technical problem on my phone, please help.

I think that you guys need to stop letting people write fake things.

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. DannyS712 (talk) 23:46, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Grammar[edit]

Please change the spelling of "civilisation" to "civilization". Dirtking911 (talk) 20:35, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Why? Change the correct usage to a misspelling? See main article Civilization. Dimadick (talk) 20:38, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
Also please stop using the letter "s" in place of "z" as it is inappropriate and confusing for readers. Dirtking911 (talk) 20:39, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
The main article you pointed me to spells "civilization" with a "z". Dirtking911 (talk) 20:47, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
See WP:ENGVAR. Both spellings are correct, and unless the article is specifically about an American topic, it need not use the American spelling (with a z), even if our main article here uses that spelling. General Ization Talk 20:51, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

"Homosexuality is illegal in Egypt"[edit]

According to this page "Homosexuality is illegal in Egypt." But according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Egypt, "Egyptian law does not explicitly criminalize homosexuality or cross-dressing..."

In addition the source for this assertion, The Washington Post. 16 June 2016, is an article containing a map on which it is stated that homosexual "acts" are illegal. If the LBGT page is correct, then the statement on this page is not correct. Both cannot be true. I have pointed this out before on this talk page and requested that this be altered. The request was archived and no action was taken. Can someone who is allowed to edit this page please either edit the page or explain why the edit will not be done and consequent contradiction between two Wikipedia pages allowed to stand? Thanks.
