''Parliamentary voting rules and strategic candidacy''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.2 )
In this paper we study the vulnerability of parliamentary voting procedures to strategic candidacy. Candidates involved in an election are susceptible to influence the outcome by opting out or opting in. In the context of three-alternative elections and under the impartial anonymous culture assumption, we evaluate the frequencies of such strategic candidacy opportunities.
Keywords: strategic candidacy, parliamentary voting procedures, opting out, opting in, impartial anonymous culture.
