agrarian party

"Any of several political parties, mostly in eastern Europe, that advocate agrarianism." DCDuring TALK 15:42, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

If there's no complaint about the definition, I'd say it's a non-trivial step to get from agrarian party to party that "advocates an equitable distribution of land." None of the definitions at agrarian match.--Prosfilaes 19:10, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
No other OneLook dictionary has this term.
Maybe a rewrite would help a bit. I'm not sure about the mostly qualifier, for example. Was the US Democratic Party in the late 19th century or even the 1930s not an "agrarian party"? I am not sure that the term doesn't mean any party that represents the interests of agriculturalists. I strongly suspect that this is intended to be some kind of catch-all for the various parties that have names that are translated into English as Agrarian Party. If that is what is intended, then perhaps it should be moved to that title.
Or perhaps this should be moved to RfV to see how narrowly or broadly the term is actually used when it is not NISoP. DCDuring TALK 20:09, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Just any party that's agrarian. Consider an entry at Agrarian Party if there is a really notable, dictionary-worthy political party of that name (per our rules). Equinox 22:08, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Labour Party and Conservative party did pass an RFD, whether I like it or not. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:37, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Labour Party is like Agrarian Party (with caps). Conservative party passed RFD in error AFAICT (WikiPedant said to keep "all", seemingly not realizing that not all were alike).​—msh210 (talk) 17:32, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
