Yes, that's what I am suggesting.
It should make no difference whether we
(1) apply the election method to all candidates at once
(2) shrink all candidates A(1),...,A(n) of a set of clones
to a single candidate A, apply the election method to this
reduced set of candidates and then -- when candidate A is
elected -- unshrink candidate A and apply the election
method to the candidates A(1),...,A(n) only.
