from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list names the list of members of the Landtag of Waldeck-Pyrmont 1917-1919 .

In 1852, Prince Georg Victor passed the constitutional charter for the principalities of Waldeck and Pyrmont . This determined a new right to vote and in 1917 the 24th and last Landtag was elected under this right to vote. 15 MPs were elected indirectly in multiple constituencies. These constituencies corresponded to the four administrative districts, with four members being elected for each district. The exception was Pyrmont, where three MPs were elected. The legal basis for the election was the Electoral Act of August 17, 1852 (Wald. Reg. Bl. P. 163) in the version dated August 2, 1856 (Wald. Reg. Bl. P. 75).
