Electoral law[edit]

The deciding factor on the 1956 results was changed from "an electoral system that did not favor alliances" to the multi-modal constituency system, briefly mentioned in the accompanying article. Additionally, a biased claim was slyly inserted, that constituencies were determined on the basis of their political leanings, a point of view completely missing from the citation in question. Since attributing nefarious motives unsupported by the sources conflicts with wikipedia's npov policy, I added the "dubious" tags until proper citations are provided. 20:42, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

The change is drastic but correct, and User: should be commended for catching such an major mistake. Google "Τριφασικό 1956" to find numerous articles about that law. I added a reference from Vima that explicitly supports this paragraph. Can you find any references that support the previous text? Regards, sys < in 08:12, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
