    The acting Australian Electoral Commissioner Kevin Kitson said interested individuals and organisations could provide written suggestions and comments about the redistribution, which will see NSW decrease its representation from 48 to 47 federal electoral divisions.

    “Written suggestions must be received by the Redistribution Committee for NSW by Friday, May 22, to allow them to be considered,” he said.

    Mr Kitson said that in making its proposal of revised electoral boundaries, the committee must ensure the number of electors in each division meets strict numerical criteria.

    “In addition, the committee will consider communities of interest, means of communications and travel, and the physical features and area of the proposed divisions.”
