Wählergruppe[edit]

I see de:Wählergruppe and de:Freie Wähler are separate articles in the German Wikipedia, but my German is not good enough to understand the difference between the two terms. Are they close enough for a combined article in en: to discuss both? There are a fair number of articles on municipalities with mayors etc given cryptic party designations like "BWV"; it would be nice to be able to link these to some article. jnestorius(talk) 11:19, 17 June 2012 (UTC)


This is easy to explain: There are many generic names for such "non-parties": "Freie Wählervereinigung", "Wählergruppe",… See all those words in italics in de:Wählergruppe. There are also specific groups having "Freie Wähler" as a part of their name. "de:Wählergruppe" explains the general term, and the nature of those groups, while "de:Freie Wähler" is a disambiguation page listing such specific groups as well as referring to "de:Wählergruppe". I think that one article is sufficient for all of those groups in the english Wikipedia. A particular party can of course get their own article if its importance justifies that. There is a Wikimedia software flaw which makes this difficult, however: you cannot make "Freie Wähler" a link to "Wählergruppe" in the english Wikipedia or vice versa, while separate articles exist in the german Wikipedia, as it seems. --CHF (talk) 13:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Success in Bavaria / CSU[edit]

When looking for sources, please note that BILD ist "Yellow Press" and not a particularly reliable source! Others think that cause and effect might be reversed: WDR radio programme

Pauli had not succeeded to "assume power" in Bavaria's most important party, the CSU, and left. After that she went to the FW of Bavaria. It's unclear if she did that primarily in order to have a chance to become elected. The FW expelled her later, now she's founded her own party.

It's very uncertain how much of the FW's success in this one election must be contributed to Pauli. There were two effects:

  • Some pleople liked her, and now voted for FW instead of CSU.
  • The FW have been discussed much more in the press due to Pauli, drawing more voters' attention to this alternative.

I am sure that this influence is not as important as it looks in the article, because there are many FW groups, some connected, some independent from each other, and Pauli almost has no influence at all outside of Bavaria. --CHF (talk) 13:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
