You're quite right. It doesn't make much sense the way it's written. The
simplest way of doing it would be for each constitutency to elect its
own members of the Names Council directly. However, even this won't
prevent the problem you address because entities can be members of more
than one constitutency. It seems that this whole NC membership question
needs more work. It's not the only thing.
