List of Parliamentary constituencies in Powys

 

List of Parliamentary constituencies in Powys

Powys is divided into just two constituencies. They are both county constituencies (CCs) of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (Westminster), and are used also for elections to the National Assembly for Wales. The current boundaries have been effective since the Welsh Assembly election, 2007 and the 2010 United Kingdom general election.[1]

Powys is one of the eight preserved counties of Wales, and has the name and boundaries of one of the 22 principal areas.

For Welsh Assembly elections, constituencies are grouped into additional member electoral regions, and changes to constituency boundaries mean, also, changes to regional boundaries.
