  (Redirected from Circonscription Sud (Luxembourg))
Circonscription Sud within Luxembourg.

Circonscription Sud is an electoral constituency for Luxembourg's national legislature, the Chamber of Deputies. The constituency includes the cantons of Capellen and Esch-sur-Alzette, both of which are in the former district of Luxembourg. As of 2005, Sud has an estimated population of 178,256, or 39% of Luxembourg's total population.

Sud currently elects 23 deputies, the most of Luxembourg's four constituencies. Under Luxembourg's electoral system, which is a form of the Hagenbach-Bischoff System, that means that each voter can cast votes for up to 23 different candidates. Voting in Luxembourg is compulsory. Together, these two factors mean that there are far more votes cast than there are members of the electorate.
