The 4th constituency of the Saône-et-Loire is a French legislative constituency in the Saône-et-Loire département.

Description[edit]

The 4th constituency of the Saône-et-Loire covers the north of Chalon-sur-Saône and the eastern part of the department. Following substantial boundary changes prior to the 2012 election the seat is now entirely different in character from its predecessor.

Whilst the seat has historically been a bastion of the Socialist Party, the new boundaries make it far more marginal and the PS candidate won by only 379 at the 2012 election.
