Merge Interim Government of Libya[edit]

Interim Government of Libya seems to be redundant to this article (section National_Transitional_Council#Interim government). If not should be merged into this article. --Conpibien (talk) 20:57, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

The name of the article is very misleading since its contents refer to a cabinet of a governemnt leader. It should be renamed, merged here, or even purged! -- (talk) 18:27, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Clarification in Dissolution Section[edit]

There was a phrase reading "As Jalil addressed the crowd, attendees chanted 'Allahu Akbar!' or 'The blood of martyrs will not go wasted!'". The usage of "or" between the two phrases can be read to mean that "Allahu Akbar" means "The blood of martyrs will not go wasted!", which is obviously incorrect (Allahu Akbar means "God is greater/greatest", and it used in many aspects of Islam for very different reasons). The cited article has a better distinction between the two phrases, so I rewrote it to read: "As Jalil addressed the crowd, attendees chanted 'Allahu Akbar!' or another phrase meaning 'The blood of martyrs will not go wasted!'" to better match the meaning of the article (talk) 20:13, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Infobox query[edit]

There has been recent edit-warring regarding the "Former country" infobox in this article. The infobox was added in this diff from June 2013; an "Organization" infobox has been in the article since 2011, and the two infoboxes now coexist. The "Former country" infobox lasted for around 6 months before being challenged; the removal has been reverted by one editor, and I personally believe it should be there. Is there consensus either way? 6an6sh6 07:46, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
