Hi all, I suggest merging the two articles as there is some ideal continuity between the two parties (the new one was founded by members of the old one), enough to justify one article treating both. The new one can be seen as a refoundation.

The Norwegian Wikipedias (in bokmål and nynorsk) have each one article only for the party. --Orzetto 08:43, 22 August 2005 (UTC)

I would disagree with a merger. Many former DLF members remained in Venstre and there is a different political orientation. Legally there is no continuation. It is better to keep separate articles. Electionworld 09:11, 22 August 2005 (UTC)
Well, also other parties experience modifications in their politics, but keep an article. True, there is no legal continuity between the two, but the second was founded by members of the first. It would be also difficult to point to English translations from the Norwegian Wikipedias, since they have only one page each: which should they point in the English version? And, lastly, the current names are quite ugly. --Orzetto 08:49, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
I suggest keeping two separate articles, Liberal People's Party (Norway, 1972) and Liberal People's Party (Norway, 1992). --Soman 17:26, 29 September 2005 (UTC)
Keep the articles separate. They are still separate parties. Sjakkalle (Check!) 11:35, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
I strongly urge to keep the articles separate. The party that was started in 1992 has very little in common with the original party apart from the name. I have heard the claim that it was started by members of the old party, but haven't seen any confirmation of this. The members of the old DLF that I have spoken with are certainly quite appalled by the use of their old name by this new party. (Barend 18:00, 13 November 2005 (UTC))

One argument to merge them is what happened in 2001 when expulsees from Progress Party tried running under that name, claiming that they had the rights from the old party.
