Governments on the WWW
Still having trouble? This is a comprehensive database of governmental institutions on the World Wide Web: parliaments, ministries, offices, law courts, embassies, city councils, public broadcasting corporations, central banks, multi-national organisations and political parties are all included. This database has been online since June 1995 and as of April 1999 contains more than 12000 entries from 219 countries and territories. Essentially a directory of official government websites, this list covers both national municipal governments, some political parties and more. However, many of these pages are offered in a Hebrew-only format.
