Constituency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (928 words)
In Canada, constituencies are legally known as electoral districts (in French, circonscriptions) for Members of Parliament and Members of Legislative Assemblies at the provincial level, although "constituency" and the informal term "riding" (or "comté" in French) are also used.
The constituencies for the rest of the seats are the federal states, representatives being drawn from the top of their respective electoral lists.
Constituencies in the Republic of Ireland elect between three and five TDs, while constituencies between 1536 and 1800 in the Kingdom of Ireland used to return two MPs.
