a The percentage of votes is not related to the number of votes in the table, as voters could cast more votes in some constituencies than others, and is instead calculated based on the proportion of votes received in each constituency.
Results by locality
The CSV won pluralities in three of the four circonscriptions, coming behind the LSAP in that party's Sud stronghold. The CSV's vote was remarkably consistent across the whole of the country, whereas the other two main parties' votes varied wildly (particularly in Sud). The Greens and ADR won disproportionate number of votes in the east-central region and north respectively.
The CSV won pluralities across most of the country, winning more votes than any other party in 86 of the country's (then) 118 communes. The LSAP won pluralities in 21 communes, primarily in the Red Lands in the south. The DP won 12 communes, particularly in its heartland of Luxembourg City and the surrounding communes.
