A Consensual Committee Using Approval Balloting

Begoña Subiza () and Josep E. Peris ()

No 14-5, QM&ET Working Papers from University of Alicante, D. Quantitative Methods and Economic Theory

Abstract: A new voting rule for electing committees is described. Specifically, we use approval balloting and propose a voting procedure guaranteeing that if a committee representing (in a determined proportion) all voters exists, then the selected committee has to represent all voters at least in the same proportion. This condition is a generalization of the unanimity property and the usual voting procedures in this context do not satisfy it.
