Abstract

This paper deals with the distribution of seats between municipalities in the inter-communal council (EPCI) of Martinique and Guadeloupe. In each of the EPCIs, we calculate the voting power of municipalities using the Shapley-Shubik and Banzhaf indices. Our analysis allows us to show that in almost all the EPCIs of Martinique and Guadeloupe, there is no similarity between the distribution of power indices and the distribution of population percentages. There is also a distortion between the distribution of power indices and the distribution of delegate percentages.
