MembersEdit

Population reviews of each electoral district are conducted before each general election, which can lead to certain districts being granted a smaller or greater number of parliamentary seats. Elazığ's seats have remained stable since 1999, continuously electing five MPs. Mehmet Kemal Ağar was one of the few MPs who was re-elected in the 2002 general election without changing parties.
