PAN/PRD[edit]

Can somebody add some insight as to why the PT occasionally supports the PAN candidate over the PRD candidate? Shouldn't communists and right-wing Catholics be opponents?

Proposed Move[edit]

  • Oppose: Reasoning at WP:RM irrelevant; the question is what English-speakers call the party, or what it calls itself in English. (I would also suspect that neither of these standards will support Labour.) Parties can have the same name and support quit different things. Septentrionalis 06:51, 9 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. I don't see how the reasoning would be irrelevant. The generic correspondents of 'Partido del Trabajo' is translated as 'Party of Labour' into English, such is the case of the Albanian party. Of course parties with identical names might conduct different politics, but the case of 'Party of Labour' is a special one. The name was launched inside the communist movement as an alternative to using 'Communist Party of X-country'. 'Labour Party' is translated 'Partido Laborista' in Spanish. --Soman 14:56, 9 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Actually, I propose moving this to Workers' Party (Mexico) per [1]. —Nightstallion (?) 08:10, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
    • Comment, how do you come to the conclusion that 'Trabajo' means 'Workers'? Moreover thats a name that has been used by other groups in Mexico. --Soman 11:41, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
      • I don't come to a conclusion regarding the translation. It just appears that this site uses "Worker's Party" to translate the party's name, and so I proposed this as an additional possibility. —Nightstallion (?) 18:54, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Not moved per lack of consensus. —Nightstallion (?) 07:34, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Folks, this is ridiculous. Mexicans use American spelling when writing in English (just look at goverment Web sites), almost always. Have any of you been to Mexico? "Labour" needs to be a redirect to Labor. "Consensus" on Wiki policy here has already been established, we don't need it in this particular decision. BrianinStockholm 19:47, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

1994 candidate[edit]

Why does the article Mexican general election, 1994 say Cecilia Soto González was the candidate, which seems to disagree with this article? RJFJR 21:07, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Move proposal, again[edit]

I suggest that this article be moved to 'Party of Labor (Mexico)', and that the Laborist Party (Mexico) be moved to 'Labor Party (Mexico)'. Partido Laborista is a standard way to translate the 'Labour Party' into Spanish, whilst 'Laborist' isn't really a word in English. --Soman (talk) 09:55, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
