In the paper "Multiparty Computation Secure Against Continual Memory Leakage", on page 1241 (that's page 7 of the PDF) under section 2.3, the authors discuss "The Election Protocol" that they use to elect committees. The election protocol they use guarantees a constant fraction of honest parties and that each committee holds roughly the same number of parties.
In the same paper on page 1249 (that's page 15 of the PDF), you see the pre-proc phase is boxed in with 4 steps. The first step happens to be the execution of the election protocol. Why does it have to execute inside the pre-proc box if the election protocol is leakage-resilient? The sole purpose of pre-proc box is to assume a leak-free environment. However, if the election protocol is leakage resilient… why on earth would the authors stick it in the pre-proc box?
This is baffling me. If I would have written the paper, I would have moved the election out of the pre-proc box before pre-proc even starts.
