Tkuma vs National UnionEdit

This and most other wikipedia articles say Tkuma is a component of UWRP, but the logo and many English language sources call the party by the name National Union. Should this be fixed? 128.135.176.142 (talk) 22:54, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

After the National Union broke up before the 2013 Israeli legislative election, Tkuma got the right to use the name and election symbol of the National Union from Moledet, Thus Tkuma changed it's name to HaIchud HaLeumi-Tkuma, and the Tet represents Tkuma / National Union in the Tet-Bet of the Jewish Home. The National Union as an alliance was several parties, though today it is just Tkuma. ShimonChai (talk) 00:07, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Shouldn't it be "Union of Right-Wing Parties"?Edit

איחוד מפלגות הימין, or Ichud Miflagot HaYamin, translates literally to Union of Parties of the Right. English language media typically writes this as Union of Right-Wing Parties (https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/union-of-right-wing-parties) (https://www.timesofisrael.com/topic/urwp-union-of-right-wing-parties/). If it were Union of the Parties of the Right / Union of the Right-Wing Parties, that would correspond to איחוד המפלגות הימין or Ichud HaMiflagot HaYamin. Please correct me if my Hebrew is rusty. Thanks. Jacoby531 (talk) 19:25, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Union of the Right-Wing Parties is the literal translation. Union of Right-Wing Parties is typically what English media calls it. To my understanding, the ruling on this is that we go with what WP:RS calls the party. ShimonChai (talk) 19:57, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Move Request to Right-Wing Parties UnionEdit

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review after discussing it on the closer's talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Regrettably, the call for this request must be procedural close. There can be only one requested move per talk page, and the nom agreed to the request in the next section. (nac by page mover) P. I. Ellsworthed. put'r there 15:04, 27 August 2019 (UTC)


Union of the Right-Wing PartiesRight-Wing Parties Union – More elegant and shorter name. In English we should put the adjective before the noun. Please also read Talk:Opinion_polling_for_the_September_2019_Israeli_legislative_election#We_have_a_problem. Sokuya (talk) 14:35, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

There aren't articles that have the name United Right that should be named URWP; I fixed it myself. On your other point, URWP (or something close to it) is the phrasing used by Haaretz [1], The Jerusalem Post [2] and The Times of Israel. [3]. I don't see a reason to change it. David O. Johnson (talk) 16:28, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
United Right is running under the name "Yemina" anyways [4], so the second point is moot. David O. Johnson (talk) 17:36, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Now that the New Right + Jewish Home + Tkuma alliance is called Yemina and not United Right, would it be possible to move this page back to United Right instead? I think that was a satisfactory solution for everyone until the merger happened, and now that the naming conflict is apparently resolved, it should be fine to move it back. Jacoby531 (talk) 21:57, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

I agree. Sokuya (talk) 09:35, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
I would also support this, it seems like the most sensible option as it was the name used by Israel Hayom, Arutz Sheva, JNS and others. English-language ads for the list in the April election also used this name.--Jay942942 (talk) 20:00, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
Shouldn't this be it's own section on the talk page? David O. Johnson (talk) 00:42, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

The result of the move request was: No consensus so article is restored to its original location of Union of Right-Wing Parties  — Amakuru (talk) 12:46, 5 September 2019 (UTC)



Union of the Right-Wing PartiesUnited Right (Israel) – This was the original name of the article before it had to be changed, rationale for changing no longer exists and it can changed back Jacoby531 (talk) 01:40, 14 August 2019 (UTC) --Relisted. P. I. Ellsworthed. put'r there 15:14, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

@Sokuya, David O. Johnson, and Jay942942: Pinging those involved in the discussion above. Jacoby531 (talk) 01:43, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Oppose. My understanding is that it goes like this:

New Right & URWP (Tkuma & The Jewish Home) became the United Right. See here: [5] or here: [6]. What was the "United Right" [7] has been renamed as Yemina/Yamina. [8]

Different sources detailing the renaming from UR to Yamina: Arutz Sheva: [9] ,The Times of Israel: [10] ,The Jerusalem Post: [11] ,Haaretz: [12], Israel Hayom [13]

The URWP still exists. Haaretz: [14] ,The Times of Israel: [15] , Arutz Sheva: [16]

It's totally illogical to move this page to United Right when that name isn't even in use by UR anymore. David O. Johnson (talk) 02:16, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Also, the original name of the article was "Union of Right-Wing Parties"; it wasn't United Right; see here: [17]. David O. Johnson (talk) 06:02, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
