(quick merge from Consistency Criterion)
The '''consistency criterion''' requires that any candidate who wins both of two separate sets of voters must also win the combined electorate. Although it is not a logical requirement, generally speaking systems which satisfy the consistency criterion also satisfy the [[participation criterion]]. The reverse implication is also common, though slightly less so.
