List of Parliamentary constituencies in Dyfed


List of Parliamentary constituencies in Dyfed

There are five constitencies covering Dyfed. They are all county constituencies (CCs) of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (Westminster), and are used also, since the 1999 Welsh Assembly election, for elections to the National Assembly for Wales.

Dyfed is one of the eight preserved counties of Wales, consisting of the principal areas of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. These principal areas are also known as counties.

Boundary Commission for Wales proposals for new boundaries have been accepted,[1] to become effective for the 2010 United Kingdom general election and the Welsh Assembly election, 2007. The new boundaries will realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of local government wards and reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies.

For Welsh Assembly elections, constituencies are grouped into additional member electoral regions. Boundary changes will affect the whole of Wales, and changes to constituency boundaries will mean, also, changes to regional boundaries.
