In this paper, we study the leader election problem in the full information model. We show two results in this context. First, we exhibit a constructive O(log N) round protocol that is resilient against linear size coalitions. That is, our protocol is resilient against any coalition of size less then betaN for some constant (but small) value of beta. Second, we provide an easy, non-constructive probabilistic argument that shows the existence of O(log N) round protocol in which beta can be made as large as 1/2 - epsilon for any positive epsilon. Our protocols are extremely simple.
