IMHO in your case, all names (official and not) are perfect fits for the
"name" tag. If you wanted to trace their "officiality" you could add the
legal basis as a second tag (e.g. source=law xy from 2016/04/01). This way
future verifications would be easier (if you already have the details of
the voting at hand).
