Please post in this question all tag synonyms which you think should be combined. Having too many ways to refer to a given topic is just confusing, and it fragments things.
"Political" seems redundant, given where we are.
Also us -> united-states
Maybe parliament <-> parliamentary (not sure which way to go)
united-states → usa
health-insurance-exhange → healthcare
voting-systems → voting
taxes ↔ taxation
No idea which way, though - perhaps synonymize both to tax?
temporal-vacancy to temporary-vacancy
...which is what I assume the author meant -- although I'm not sure that this deserves a tag at all.
uk → united-kingdom
I know that Great Britain and the United Kingdom are technically not the same thing, but they're used interchangeably in practice.
britain -> uk
"Britain" (but not "Great Britain") is very commonly used as a synonym for "UK".
Merge economy, economics, and economic policy into economics.
commonwealth -> commonwealth-of-nations
british-commonwealth -> commonwealth-of-nations
I suggested election <- electoral and polling <- opinion-polling. Feel free to vote them up to approval.
To my feeling the tag election is misnamed. I would prefer it to be called elections. Common usage is Today, parliamentary elections are being held in X, not a parliamentary election is being held in X.
president -> head-of-state
