[EM] Modification of STV to guard against favourite betrayal

There was no strategy voting as far as I know.
There was an election to the party list (primaries), using essentially
Top-down STV (see article: http://www.votingmatters.org.uk/issue9/p5.htm),
where a less preferred candidate got a higher place on the list, instead of
getting a more preferred candidate a lower place on the list, which is a
well-known weakness of this method.
