This paper deals with the characterization of two classes of monotonic and neutral (MN) aggregation operators. The first class corresponds to (MN) aggregators which are stable for the same positive linear transformations and present the ordered linkage property. The second class deals with (MN)-idempotent aggregators which are stable for positive linear transformations with same unit, independent zeroes and ordered values. These two classes correspond to the weighted ordered averaging operator (OWA) introduced by Yager in 1988. It is also shown that the OWA aggregator can be expressed as a Choquet integral.
