Furthermore, electoral districts are established no later than 58 days before elections (Article 15.6). This is not advisable. The time for establishing electoral districts should not depend on the date of elections; otherwise, the door would be open to political manipulation. The reapportionment should rather take place after each regular census, that is in principle every 10 years, in order to take into account the changes in the population.
