Boundary assignment may account for geographical criteria or administrative or historical boundary lines.
- The geographical criterion and administrative, or possibly even historical, boundaries may be taken into consideration.
- The delimitation process should: be conducted on the basis of clearly identified criteria such as population distribution, community of interest, convenience, geographical features and other natural or administrative boundaries.
- The drawing of boundaries…may include the use of criteria such as population size and geographical or administrative boundaries.
- With multi-member constituencies, seats should preferably be redistributed without redefining constituency boundaries, which should, where possible, coincide with administrative boundaries.
