Abstract

A number of recent studies have analysed malapportionment in countries using single member constituencies. Malapportionment in countries using multi-member constituencies has been neglected. In Norway, despite the use of multi-member constituencies, serious malapportionment has occurred at each general election to the Storting (the Norwegian Parliament) since 1921. The scale of malapportionment is identified and reasons are suggested for its occurrence and continuation in spite of redistributions of seats in 1953 and 1973. Finally, possible political effects of malapportionment are identified. IMB).
