Each of the 13 regions in Namibia are further subdivided into electoral constituencies. The number and size of each constituency varies with the size and population of each region. There are currently 107 constituencies in Namibia. The most populous constituency is Walvis Bay Urban in the Erongo region; the least populous is Walvis Bay Rural.
The administrative division of Namibia is tabled by Delimitation Commissions and accepted or declined by the National Assembly. In 1992, the First Delimitation Commission chaired by Judge President Johan Strydom determined the number of constituencies to be 95. Since then, every Delimitation Commission has increased this number to accommodate population growth.
Regional councillors are directly elected through secret ballots (regional elections) by the inhabitants of their constituencies.
