Close to 10 constituencies in the North Rift region risk being scrapped by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(IEBC).
According to the recently released census results the constituencies did not meet the constitutional population threshold.
The constituencies include; Tiaty (73,424), Keiyo North (99,176), Marakwet East (97,041), Pokot South (80,661), Turkana North (65,218), Mogotio(91,104), Endebess(111,782), Baringo Central(96,951), Baringo South(90,955) and Loima (107,795).
The new population quota has risen to 164,137 people.
The population quota is calculated by dividing the total national population of 47.6 million people by the 290 constituencies.
However, the Constitution allows the number of inhabitants of a constituency or ward to be higher or lesser than the population quota by a margin of not more than 40 per cent. This therefore means the lowest populated constituency should have at least 114,889 people.
The Census results paves way for the IEBC to conduct boundaries review before the 2022 general election.
The boundaries review will be the second review after the 2010 review which was led by the Andrew Ligale.
