[post] Overview of citizen lists / pirate parties in elections

J Josse Public Seen by 15

What have we got we can recommend? LLN:Kayoux; Tubize: pp, Anvers: pp+Volt, La Louvière: Cum Lupis, I could not see anything democratic in Ghent, Ostend says to be having 3 citizen lists...

Of course. They seem to be trusted as citizen list but I would like to hear a second opinion about it.

I'm not convinced about the idea of including Gentse burgers in any article from us. We don't know anything about them, do we? They left PPBe, they don't share info, so... I don't really see what we could even say about them (same about Oostende or whatever)

Also : Patrick Installé has a Parti Pirate list in Tubize.

Because a lot of parties announce themselves into citizen participation, it would be easy to do a check on their program to see how seriously they can be taken as a citizen list : are they linked to political parties? Are they linked to left-right ideology? Are they transparent? You don't need to know them to answer these questions.

I disagree. I think that you actually need to meet them to see if they are really open and transparent, if they are a real citizen list, to see how they work, etc. Although, it should not be difficult to meet, I guess. Especially if you explain that you want to write an article about them x)

Hmm OK I get it now, but maybe it will be confusing to have both "pirate involvement in the elections" + "fact-check the citizen lists" in the same article. Shouldn't it be split in 2 different articles then?

Would not the styles be a bit confusing (or maybe this is just the advantage to show our diversity) to mix Antwerp posters and Patrick in one article?

On the other hand, we could just do Antwerp in Dutch and Tubize in French

Regarding "burgerlijsten" For me this is NOT equal to the Pirate Party concept. Why should we then make a article? It is there choice to sail under another flag...
