This is done by assuming that the outcome of a pair of declarations, «(jJ,,(/J2), is a lottery, {(Prob(rrd,(jJ,),(Prob(rr2),(jJ2)} say, where Prob(rrj) is the probability that candidate j wins the election. As Cox (1984) has shown, if each candidate (or party) has a Euclidean preference based on the party's preferred point, and is committed to the implementation of its declared position if it wins, then there is a (non-convergent) pure strategy Nash eqUilibrium. As soon as parties have preferred positions, then the validity of the assumption of policy commitment in Downsian models becomes suspect.
