Helsinki is a Finnish constituency represented in eduskunta. It covers the administrative area of the city of Helsinki, with a population of 591,306 (as of 2011). Helsinki elects 22 members to eduskunta.

The constituency has an urban profile, as it includes the city center of Helsinki and its eastern, mainly working-class suburbs.

The largest party by votes in the 2019 election was the Green League, although it shared the lead by seats with the National Coalition Party.[1]
