Template name[edit]

Shouldn't the template be named "Parrties in the German Budestag" or something like that? The numbers denote their Budestag membership, though there's no way to know this if you don't already; and there are a number of German parties with elected represesntatives on the state level that aren't listed here. --Jfruh (talk) 02:52, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't think that this template should be limited in its scope to parties that have seats in the Federal Diet. There are parties which should IMHO be listed here although have no seats in the Federal Diet (yet), such as the Pirate Party (they're likely to enter the House of Representatives (state parliament) of Berlin after the 2011-09-18 elections and they already had one person in the Federal Diet before), the Free Voters (They used to limit their scope to local politics, but now they run in federal and state elections as well) and the "National Democratic Party of Germany" (infamous far right party that most people want to see banned). -- 217.229.51.13 (talk) 11:29, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
I've added a collapsible list of all the other parties with Wikipedia articles. Bastin 17:08, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
