Abstract

In this paper, the authors analyze four national elections held in 1982, 1986, 1989, and 1994 in the Netherlands on the occurrence of the Condorcet paradox. In addition, they investigate these elections on the occurrence of three so-called majority-plurality paradoxes. The first paradox states that a party having a majority over another party may receive less seats. The second states that a Condorcet winner may not receive the largest number of seats and even may not receive a seat at all. The third says that the majority relation may be the reverse of the ranking of parties in terms of numbers of seats. Copyright 1998 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
