CONTESTED ELECTIONS IN A CITIZEN CANDIDATE MODEL

Jon Eguia ()

Economics and Politics, 2006, vol. 18, issue 1, 95-102

Abstract: This work follows the citizen candidate model of Besley and Coate (1997) to show that for a unidimensional policy issue, a moderate default policy rules out equilibrium outcomes in which there is an uncontested candidate.
