Majority Judgement: a completely new voting system Part Two. The Principal Properties of Majority Ju

CPNSS Voting Power in Practice lectures, sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust

Laraki argues that the new Majority Judgement voting system is superior because it best ranks candidates according to merit. It best resists manipulation or “gaming the vote.” It heeds majority rule. It is not subject to Arrow’s impossibility, nor to most other classical paradoxes.

Rida Laraki is Research Associate at CNRS and the Econometrics Laboratory, Ecole Polytechnique, Paris and co-author with Michel Balinski of One Value­One Vote: Measuring, Electing and Ranking (Forthcoming 2009) in which the theory of Majority Judgement is developed.
