The 9th constituency of the Bas-Rhin is a French legislative constituency in the Bas-Rhin département.

Description[edit]

The 9th constituency of Bas-Rhin covers the area north of Strasbourg around the large town of Haguenau.

In common with much of Alsace outside Strasbourg and Mulhouse the constituency has been held by conservative parties for all of the Fifth Republic. All three cantons that make up the constituency are currently held by the UMP. The constituency was held up former Prime Minister of France Pierre Pflimlin during the 1950s & 1960s.

From 2012 until 2017 the seat was held by Claude Sturni, Mayor of Haguenau, having defeated the official UMP candidate in the second round of the 2012 election.
