The 7th constituency of the Rhône (French: Septième circonscription du Rhône) is a French legislative constituency in the Rhône département. Like the other 576 French constituencies, it elects one MP using the first past the post election system with a run-off.

Description[edit]

The 7th constituency of the Rhône lies to the east of Lyon. It is a densely packed constituency predominately made up of suburbs of the city divided from each other by the Rhône. One of these suburbs Vaulx-en-Velin lies between two branches of the river, surrounded on three sides by it and on the other by the Grand parc de Miribel-Jonage.

This constituency was one of the more left leaning in the department, until 2017 with the exception of 1993 it had always returned a PS deputy. At the 2017 elections the PS incumbent came 5th leaving En Marche! and The Republicans to fight the second round.
