In European elections, this is a constituency of the European Parliament. It consists of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship and Opole Voivodeship.

Nomenclature

The relevant Polish legislation ("The Act of 23 January 2004 on Elections to the European Parliament" [ [http://www.pkw.gov.pl/pkw2/index.jsp?place=Lead07&news_cat_id=12&news_id=2355&layout=1&page=text The Act of 23rd January 2004 on Elections to the European Parliament] ] ) establishing the constituencies does not give the constituencies formal names. Instead, each constituency has a number, territorial description, and location of the Constituency Electoral Commission. The 2004 Polish National Election Commission [ [http://www.pe2004.pkw.gov.pl/komunikaty/komunikatyPKW/obwieszczenie_internet.pdf Polish National Election Commission 2004] ] and the 2004 European Parliament Election website [ [http://www.europarl.europa.eu/elections2004/ep-election/sites/en/yourvoice/pl/law.html European Parliament Election website 2004] ] uses the territorial description when referring to the constituency, not the electoral commission location.
