The 1st constituency of the Pyrénées-Orientales (French: Première circonscription des Pyrénées-Orientales) is a French legislative constituency in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. Like the other 576 French constituencies, it elects one MP using the two-round system, with a run-off if no candidate receives over 50% of the vote in the first round.

Description[edit]

The 1st constituency of Pyrénées-Orientales mainly consists of the majority Perpignan, which is shared with Pyrénées-Orientales's 3rd constituency and Pyrénées-Orientales's 2nd constituency. The seat also includes the town of Toulouges just to the west of the city.

The constituency has vacillated between left and right, however in 2017 the voters opted for centrist En Marche! over the far right National Front in the second round. The Republicans trailed in 3rd in the 1st round and there was no candidate from the PSdespite them winning the seat in the previous election.[3]
