I'm involved in a project of strutured narrative about brazilian elections that I think it will be useful to improve elections items at Wikidata. The database of the official electoral institutions can provide a lot of information. Scrap and bring this data is part of the plan. A political coalition is an agreement for cooperation between different political parties. In a parlamentary item, besides party, it would be great to have the coalition that politician was involved while the electoral process. Ederporto (talk) 01:19, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose. I'm not sure this is the best way to model this. I think we need to look at a broader set of political coalitions and how they work across countries, and figure out a setup that works as widely as possible. --Yair rand (talk) 19:43, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. In the Brazilian case, this refers to electoral coalitions, an object of our electoral system. I understand this applies elsewhere. Joalpe (talk) 01:27, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I'm pretty sure Mexico and the Philippines have similar systems. Mr. Guye (talk) 18:51, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose per Yair rand. If not properly defined, this property could be lumping together legislature (Q11204) and executive branch (Q35798). The meaning of "Party coalition" is not the same in countries with indirect election (Q877353) as it is in the ones with direct election (Q1196727). strakhov (talk) 22:20, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
