What bathing suit should be worn in Cairo Egypt?

From experience it depends - info Seven years old - on where and what beach you visit. Some allow bikini bathing others do not. Most of the locals swim fully clothed.

Recently there has been a move away from this for the richer folk who wear the more conservative Full body suit. This covers the the whole body from neck to ankles to wrist. These now appear to be approved on all Arab beaches as we have sold many to places like Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran.

Former belly dancer:

Only in private hotels that accept foreign tourist permit bikini or western style swim wear only in private access pool areas that is sequestered off from public display meaning indoor only or those that have gated security and tolerate or cater to western cultural.

In the past 10 years much has changed and expect the information about western wear to change again under Egypt's new leadership, ten years ago as a belly dancer the mid-driff area of the body was permitted to be exposed but no longer requires more Islamic modesty laws today! Only now with special government permission (fees for security guards) does even a belly dancer allowed to show her mid-section abdominal area bare if so again it's usually at a western style hotel with restricted and or limited access to the public as the location of most open international dance competitions are held.

Yes there are Islamic modesty protests and the need of both police sometimes soldier guards as the protests can be violent. Rule of thumb do as the locals follow modesty practices to avoid conflict. Last there 2009.

Who was the Pharaohs chief minister who was in charge of most of Egypt?

The Pharaohs didn't generally have a chief minister. Though in the eighteenth dynasty, Amenhotep IV (also known as Akhenaten) used the sun god to guide him. His belief in only the sun god caused his reign to change the egyptians into a monotheistic civilization. This didn't last long, as he died young and it converted back to polytheism soon after. Priests could also be considered chief ministers although Pharaoh wasn't forced to follow their pleas. The proof being the Rosetta Stone, in which they gave specific instructions on how to improve egypt.

Hosni Mubarak

How many times was Mubarak reelected?

5 times.

The Egyptian semi-presidential system (A president is in power along side a prime minister who is head of the parliament) states that once elected, a president will serve for 6 years. Mubarak first became president in 1981 when he served as vice-president and the current president was assassinated.

It seems very unlikely that he will be elected again however.

Arabic is the official language of Egypt.
Modern Standard Arabic is the official language, but what's actually spoken by most Egyptians in every day life is the Egyptian dialect of colloquial Arabic. The differences between "dialects" of Arabic can sometimes be so great that it can be hard for a speaker of one dialect to understand speakers of another dialect. For this reason, it's best to regard Egyptian Arabic almost as a separate language in its own right.
Egyptian Arabic
The main spoken language in Egypt is Egyptian Arabic aka Masri. Many Egyptians use English and French in business and education. The two biggest immigrant groups tend to use both their adopted language, and their own native languages: Armenian and Greek. Not all Egyptians are Muslim. Christians use the language of the Orthodox Church: Coptic.
Arabic.
Most Egyptians speak (Egyptian) Arabic, though its not the native language of their country as well as other middle eatsern countries which came as a result of the Arab invasions. Arabic varies widely among Arabic-speaking countries. So refugees from nearby Sudan speak Sudanese Arabic. A minority group in the Sinai peninsula speaks Bedouin Arabic. Other minority languages are Beja, Berber, and Nubian. There also is a minority that speaks Domari, which is related to the Romany language of the gypsies. Egyptians involved in business and education tend to be fluent in English and French. Egyptian Christians know Coptic, the language of their Orthodox Church, the original langauge of Egypt but is only used today in litrugical services (a revival of the langauge is starting to take place with many theologians learning and copts wanting to keep their national identiity to dismiss the effect of the "arabization" process). Many of the immigrant groups within Egypt speak Egyptian Arabic outside the home, Armenian or Greek and Italian inside.
