Moving article[edit]

This is one of those ugly translation deals. It seems to be the correct thing to do. So, if renewal is indeed the correct word, lets do it. Brusegadi 16:18, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

The MRS web site refers to the organisation as Sandinista Renovation Party (MRS). --Magicartpro 02:50, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm often a bit sceptical of using translations as presented on websites of the concerned parties, at least when those translated names have very little international usage (MRS for example, does not have a wide international network). --Soman 07:50, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
The question is which one of the two verbs is the right one; to renew or to renovate? In Spanish we have only the verb renovar for those two words. The English definition of renovation seems adequate to me; renovation (noun); the act of improving by renewing and restoring. --Magicartpro 19:04, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Soman; the CIA World Factbook uses the word Renovation also. --Magicartpro 19:08, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Of course renovation and renewal are more or less synomymous. In my understanding however, renovation is the term used when renovating a building whereas renewal is more accurate when talking about a political process. --Soman 06:30, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
It can be the renewal of a license as well. Definitions of renewal and [renovation]. Major English language newspapers and other media that use Sandinista Renovation Movement in reference to the MRS:

Party ideology[edit]

What exactly is the ideology of this party, I mean how are they differant from the FSLN and why were Lewites and his followers expelled from the FSLN? (Canadianpunk77 19:39, 19 September 2007 (UTC))

They were not expelled. Lewites left because the FSLN did not want to have primary elections for the presidency. I would say that this party is more moderate than the FSLN and more educated voters tend to prefer it to the FSLN. The MRS would adopt social policies that are economically feasible the FSLN will adopt policies that are very detrimental for the country in the long run. Finally, the FSLN is much more of a chess player. They recently turned some of their social principles around by forming an alliance with some of the ex-contras (pro-somoza) and they helped pass a bill banning abortion. The MRS has not done such things... Brusegadi 02:43, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
