The 8th constituency of Moselle is a French legislative constituency in the Moselle département.

Description[edit]

Moselle's 8th constituency was radically altered following boundary changes prior to the 2012 elections so that only Fameck remained from its previous incarnation. The resulting seat consists on a slither of territory between the Moselle river and the border with Meurthe-et-Moselle to the west.

The seat was won easily by Socialist Michel Liebgott in the 2012 elections after a National Front candidate secured a place in the second round.
