Why is the number of regional councillors/seats deceptive?--Communist-USSR (talk) 15:11, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Because regional councils have a highly disproportionate number of seats when compared to real population. Just an example: Lombardy has 9.9 million inhabitants and 80 councillors, Sardinia has 1.6 million inhabitants and 60 councillors. Thus, the number of regional councillors in the infobox would be only deceptive and misleading. We discussed about this before and there was never a consensus on it. Secondly, tracking all the movements of regional councillors is quite a big deal. Consistency and updateness are all-important in en.Wiki! --Checco (talk) 15:02, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

New name?[edit]

On 14 December User:Nick.mon moved the article to Communist Party of Italy (2014). I moved the article back because, from the party's website, it seems like the party is still named Party of Italian Communists, while its renaming is under way. Depending on the outcome of this process (rename or entirely new party?), the article will be named Communist Party of Italy (1998) (rename) or Communist Party of Italy (2015) (new party). --Checco (talk) 09:18, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Also, it should be noted that the "Rebuiling the Communist Party" trascends party affiliations. Many signers of the appeal are currently members of the Communist Refoundation Party (see here). --Checco (talk) 09:24, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

I moved the page also because someone have already do it in it.Wiki; anyway I think that the party remained the same one, it just changed the name, so we should not create another article. But I agree with you in waiting until the new party's name will be official. -- Nick.mon (talk) 09:27, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
