To model coalition behavior after an election, we assume that each party chooses a preferred position (or ideal point) in a policy spaceX. As before, the parties are P = { 1, , j, , p}, and the vector of party ideal points is z = (z 1, , z p ). After the election we denote the number of seats controlled by party, j, by s j and let s = (s 1, , s p ) be the of the vector of parliamentary seats.
