Different countries have different processes for elections: registration of
political parties and candidates, the form of the ballot, the system for
counting the votes and dividing the seats in the legislature, etc.

I was surprised not to find almost any data about electoral history for
Israeli political parties. I also couldn't find it for other famous
political parties around the world, like CDU (Germany), Syriza (Greece), or
GOP (U.S.).

Representing it in Wikidata is somewhat challenging because of the
differences between the countries, because parties, candidates lists, and
fractions are different things, etc. But only somewhat: it definitely
doesn't sound impossible.

Is there any country whose electoral processes and history are represented
comprehensively in Wikidata? If not, were there any attempts to even
discuss it?
