DescriptionEdit

The 8th constituency of Essonne is in the north east of the department and consists of the Parisian suburbs around Yerres and Vigneux-sur-Seine. The seat was created in 1986 as the number of seats in Essonne grew from four to ten reflecting the rapidly increasing population and urbanisation of the department.

Against the national trend the seat was won by Gaullist Nicolas Dupont-Aignan in 1997.
