The 1st constituency of the Bas-Rhin is a French legislative constituency in the Bas-Rhin département, Alsace.

Description[edit]

The constituency includes the centre and immediate northern and southern cantons of Strasbourg. All the cantons were held by parties of the left; three for the PS and one for The Greens. It is therefore no surprise that the seat returned a PS member to the National Assembly between 1997 and 2017.
