Articles involved[edit]

Other steps in dispute resolution that have been attempted:[edit]

Issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Whether it is POV to call a country a Single Party System when there is proof that it discriminates against other politcal parties

[2][3] [4] yet other parties still have won seats in their 'parliament' [5]

  • If it is Original Research WPPolicy(see here) to use the above three sources as sources to cite showing Singapore is a single-party system

Additional issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Whether the definition of a single-party system must be followed exactly to determine if one country is or isn't one. Quote, "..a single-party state or one-party system or single-party system is a type of party system government in which a single political party forms the government and no other parties are permitted to run candidates for election.." [6]

Decision of the Mediation Committee[edit]


For the Mediation Committee, Essjay (Talk) 02:49, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
I am not a member of the Mediation Committee proper, but I would be happy to try to assist in this case if the participants and Mediation Committee are agreeable with this. Cheers, ✎ Peter M Dodge aka "Wiz" (Talk to Me) (Support Neutrality) 21:22, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the offer. However, we already tried informal mediation in MedCabal, and they gave up before they even started, and there have already been talk of dragging this to arbitration. I think we need people with as much klutz as possible, and therefore a formal member of the mediation comittee. Sorry. --Regebro 09:14, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
I would not have offered to help here if I were not willing to seriously entertain an attempt at mediation, especially given the nature of the issue. Cheers, ✎ Peter M Dodge aka "Wiz" (Talk to Me) (Support Neutrality) 19:17, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
I arent sure who "they" refers to there, for as an involved party, I do not recall ever being notified of the MedCabal case [7], let alone being able to "give up".--Huaiwei 21:57, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
On further pondering, I remove my objection to your mediation, Wiz. Huaiwei: They = MedCabal. --Regebro 11:22, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
Guys, lets not have an argument before the mediation even gets off the ground. If the parties would prefer a Committee member, that's valid, and will be respected. They may, however, have to wait longer for one to come available. Essjay (Talk) 02:22, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
I am taking this case for the mediation committee, assuming that no-one involved has any objection. I'll be reading through the vast quantities of material when I can and deciding how to proceed. Officially, I'm on a wikibreak, but since it doesn't appear that anyone else is going to take this case and the discussion continues to wind round, I'll do it, but I may be a little slower in my response than normal. Thanks. —Xyrael / 14:46, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
It has been pointed out to me that no-one involved is really interested in this dispute anymore, and for this reason the case it being closed. I offer informal mediation to any parties still involved - just drop me a talkpage note. Thanks. —Xyrael / 10:19, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
