One question related to the Concordet method: does it fullfill the
representative criteria?

AFAIUI the Concordet method allows this (please correct me if I'm
wrong):

We have two groups of people, A and B. A has 20 people, B 10. A fields
candidates a1, a2 and a3, and B fields b1, b2 and b3. We are about to
elect three people.

All A people post ballots a1,a2,a3,NOTA,b1,b2,b3, and all B people
post ballots b1,b2,b3,NOTA,a1,a2,a3.

In your suggestion the first three people to be elected would be a1,
a2 and a3, as they all beat all B candidates. In a representative
election a1, a2 and b1 should be elected, instead.
