In regard to the boundary commission, I accept that there may be cross-county boundaries, but the preference should be for larger constituencies of five or six seats. However, that is another day's work. The boundary commission should at least try to align constituency boundaries with municipal districts in the adjoining county rather than biting a piece from two municipal districts.
