Chrzanów (parliamentary constituency)
Chrzanów is an electoral district in Poland for elections to the Sejm, to which it elects eight members to the Sejm. In the 2007 election, it elected four members from Law and Justice, three from Civic Platform, and 1 from Left and Democrats.
It is located in the south of the country, centred on the city of Chrzanów, on the south-eastern outskirts of the Metropolitan Association of Upper Silesia and the south-western outskirts of Kraków: respectively the largest and third-largest metropolitan areas in Poland. It covers five counties in the east of the Lesser Poland Voivodeship: Chrzanów, Myślenice, Oświęcim, Sucha, and Wadowice.
Unlike other constituencies, Chrzanów does not elect members to the Senate, but is part of a larger Kraków constituency, which includes the Sejm seat of 13 – Kraków to the north. The enlarged Kraków elects four senators.
