The new election commissions of the four new direct municipalities (Sinbei City, Taichung City, Tainan City, and Kaohsiung City) will be formed on March 2. Their first order of business will be to draw up electoral districts for the city council elections, a process which is supposed to be finished within two months. I assume the Taipei City election commission will also be finalizing its plan by that time. In a previous post, I laid out the districts and number of seats in each for Taichung City. This was from a newspaper article. I think their source was someone who should be involved in the forthcoming process, and I would not be at all surprised if what emerges is exactly what the story suggested had already been decided. However, nothing will be final until May, apparently. For reference, the election is scheduled for December.
