Hi, 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?
