Percentage of votes
The articles on the other Austrian parties gave their percentage of the vote in 1999 and 2001. Could someone put them in for this article too, please? Mr. Jones 16:27, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
edits in table
I had to revert edits by User:220.127.116.11 and User:Dave it and revert to the version of 11:47, September 18, 2006. The table was completely in the wrong format with strange pieces of information, probably done by users with little English knowledge, I will clean the whole thing up and try to pick the good bits and integrate them into the article.

An instant classic...
I changed the sentence "The new regulation required all SPÖ candidates to be at least 40% female.", because I think a single candidate does not have to be 40% female, but rather 40% of all candidates. Blur4760 00:02, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
There is a group, called "Der Funke", in the SPÖ is socialist. That should be added to "Political Ideology".--Dave it 10:35, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
- Yes, that's true.--18.104.22.168 10:36, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

- Until 1994 a similar group (Offensief) operated within the Dutch PvdA, they did not affect the course much and they weren't officially recognized and were very small (less than 100 members). If they are similar I wouldn't include them in the template, but maybe just mention them in the text somewhere. C mon 16:17, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Moreover Socialism is one of the leading ideologies, especaially democrtaic socialism. --22.214.171.124 09:30, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
Look at the SJÖ, they were very important for the party after the legislative elections (Interview => www.diepresse.com).--126.96.36.199 16:39, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
- Honestly I don't see your arguement could you please explain the nature of these organizations, shortly so every one, also people who aren't burried deeply in SPO politics can understand your argument. C mon 16:55, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
SJÖ=Socialist Youth, a marxist organisation
For example: the SJÖ is important for the way the party goes, one week before the legislative elections they made a request not to go in a coalition with the ÖVP and the whole SPÖ agreed (100%)(1,read).And there are a lot more of requests. Another example is: Josef Cap, a leading person said, that he wouldn't accept a right-wing-coalition, because the socialist youth wouldn't want that(2,read).--188.8.131.52 09:23, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
- A political ideology differs from a political strategy. Not cooperating with the OVP is a strategic choice and not a sign of ideology. C mon 10:35, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Yes, in this point you are right, but this is only an example.Another example is, that the SJÖ made another reject against racism in the SPÖ and it was also agreed.--184.108.40.206 12:07, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
- Racism is not the same as socialism, you can be racist and socialist and non-socialist and non-racist. C mon 22:40, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I know, but I only wanted to show how they influence the party.t has nothing to do with racism. --220.127.116.11 05:11, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
- So the presumed socialist organization has influenced the SPO on two points: a non-socialist ideological point and a non-ideological point. I am not convinced of your argument.
Surely, anti-racism is a sign of socialism.--18.104.22.168 20:26, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
Could someone possibly add that?If not, then I'll do. --22.214.171.124 16:26, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
Views, Issues and Ideals
I think this article is in a rather desperate need of actually informing the reader what views the SPÖ actually hold, so they can discern if and in what way the party differs from its Third Way counterparts.
I have decided to write a little about this subject with the hope to be able to end this lacune. Any criticism would be welcomed.
- The electoral programme of the Social Democratic Party of Austria identifies freedom, equality, justice and solidarity as the key values of social democracy. For the party, freedom not only means the absence of dictatorship, but also the selfdetermination created by the accessibility of information, social security and education which helps people to become independent.
