Uşak is an electoral district of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. It elects 3 members of parliament (deputies) to represent the province of the same name for a four-year term by the D'Hondt method, a party-list proportional representation system.


A population review of every electoral district is conducted before each general election, which can lead to certain districts being granted a smaller or greater number of parliamentary seats. Tunceli has elected two members of parliament since 1961; previously, it elected three.

There are currently three sitting members of parliament representing Uşak: two from the governing Justice and Development Party (AK Party) and one from the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP).
