Party's successor[edit]

I disagree with this edit by Maremmano for several reasons. The Radical Party (PR) was dissolved in order to make way for the Transnational Radical Party (PRT) in January 1988. The PRT is thus the only formal successor of the PR. In the infobox it is however useful to have also the practical electoral successor: readers need to be able to connect the party with its successive electoral reincarnations. Maremmano wants to have "Antiprohibitionists on Drug" (literal translation of Anti-proibizionisti sulla Droga), but the list, which ran in the 1989 European Parliament election lacks an article. More important, the list was not formally endorsed by the PRT. As far as I know and understand, Radicals divided themselves in two competing lists, the Rainbow Greens and the cited Anti-prohibition list. Also in the 1992 general elections there were two Radical lists, Pannella List and Yes Referendum, but only the former was endorsed by the PRT. For all these reasons and, especially, for the sake of readers, I would leave Pannella List in the infobox. In the meantime I'm going to implement a compromise version. --Checco (talk) 07:45, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
