Athens B

  (Redirected from Athens B (constituency))

Athens B (Athens Beta; Greek: Β΄ Αθηνών) was a parliamentary constituency[1] in Attica represented in the Hellenic Parliament. It covered a large part of urban area of Athens outside the Municipality of Athens, which forms the Athens A constituency. It was established in 1958, to separate the working-class districts from central Athens and reduce the electoral power of the then United Democratic Left, and was abolished in 2018.[2]
