Majority rule is arguably the best decision mechanism for public decision-making, which is employed not only in public management but also in business management. The concept of majority equilibrium captures such a democratic spirit in requiring that no other solutions would please more than half of the voters in comparison to it. The work of Chen, Deng, Fang, and Tian  considers a public facility location problem decided via a voting process under the majority rule on a discrete network. This work distinguishes itself from previous work by applying the computational complexity approach to the study of majority equilibrium. For the model with a single public facility located in trees, cycles, and cactus graphs, it is shown that the majority equilibrium can be found in linear time. On the other hand, when the number of public facilities is taken as the input size (not a constant), finding a...
