Fair use rationale for Image:European Democratic Party logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:European Democratic Party logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:52, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Future alliances[edit]

I have read vague mentions that the EDP, or elements currently inside the EDP, may possibly ally with the PES in the next European parliament. Is there anything to this beyond mere speculation? --Free Socialist 00:32, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I too read about a possible EDP-PES alliance, but at this point I think that it is simply a speculation. If you are interested in discussing about European Parliament groups, you can go to Talk:Political groups of the European Parliament. --Checco (talk) 07:26, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
I've heard the same, and it seems quite logical to me -- Italy's PD is sympathetic to both of those parties, the EDP would gain more influence and the PES might have more of a chance to surpass EPP-ED (or EPP without ED, if Cameron splinters away) in the number of MEPs... —Nightstallion 22:57, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Social Liberal[edit]

These infobox classifications are very difficult. But I think that Social Liberal, Christian Democratic is the best way to describe the party instead of centrist. There are several reason to prefer social liberalism perhaps in addition to Christian democratic

  1. Centrism is a position on a political dimension not an ideology.
  2. The ideologies of the individual parties. Here on wikipedia Path of Change, Popular Alliance (San Marino), Democratic Movement (France), Democracy is Freedom – The Daisy are all identified as (social-)liberal. Additionally the Basque Nationalist Party and Democracy is Freedom – The Daisy are (also) idenitified as Christian-democratic.

Therefore I would prefer having at least social liberalism in the template. C mon (talk) 18:52, 20 August 2008 (UTC) -

Daisy is not member of EDP anymore[edit]

Democratic Party was born on October 14th.Since that date,former DS and former Daisy members sit as independents in the PES and ALDE group,and they are not member of the European parties anymore. Itanesco (talk) 12:21, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
