I dag er jeg stolt, glad og ikke så lite ydmyk. Nominasjonskomiteen har nominert meg på plass nummer to på stortingsvalglista for Rødt Buskerud ved neste års stortingsvalg....
Buskerud har i dag 9 stortingsrepresentanter, og jeg tror det skal velges 8 stykker fra fylket neste år.

I'm not sure what stykker refers to here. Is it referring to the representatives or to sections of the county to be represented or what?

Thanks!

    "Stykke" is here a noun that you can use for anything (people or objects) that is being counted - in this case representatives. The candidate could have said "jeg tror det skal velges 8 stortingsrepresentanter fra fylket neste år", but presumably wanted to avoid repeating this word. Or, he/she could just have said "jeg tror det skal velges 8 fra fylket neste år".

    The reason why Buskerud has 9 MPs today and will elect 8 MPs in the 2021 election, is that the distribution of seats between constituencies is revised every eighth year to adjust for population changes.
