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. The number of seats allocated to Sivas has gradually fallen over the last half-century from a high of fifteen in the 1950s to four seats today.
