Est (Chamber of Deputies of Luxembourg constituency)

Circonscription Est within Luxembourg.

Circonscription Est is an electoral constituency for Luxembourg's national legislature, the Chamber of Deputies. It includes the cantons of Echternach, Grevenmacher, and Remich, making it coterminous with the former district of Grevenmacher. As of 2005, Est has an estimated population of 53,842, or 12% of Luxembourg's total population.

Est currently elects 7 deputies, the fewest 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 7 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.
