Premier Paul Davis announced last week he wants to cut 10 districts from the 48-seat legislature to save about $2.5 million a year.
The oil-dependent province is facing at least a $916-million deficit this year after the collapse of Brent crude prices.
Davis has recalled the legislature for a special sitting to debate proposed legislation to fast-track a boundary review set for next year.
It would see the boundary review commission recommend district changes in four months.
Under provincial law, Davis must call an election within 12 months of his swearing-in on Sept. 26 but the seat review would delay the campaign.
