On 19 July 2018, Oscar I created the four electoral districts of the Empire: the North American District, the South American District and the Asian-Antarctic District, all the three with one Representative each and the European District, divided in Western and Eastern Districts, with two Representatives.
The election would not happen until 2019, during the 2019 Karno-Ruthenian general election.
