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. As a small electoral district, Karabük's seat allocation has always been low. It was three when electoral district was created in 1995. During 2011-2017, MP number is reduced to two.
