Rize is an electoral district of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. It elects three members of parliament (deputies) to represent the province of the same name for a four-year term by the D'Hondt method, a party-list proportional representation system.

Members[edit]

Population reviews of each electoral district are conducted before each general election, which can lead to certain districts being granted a smaller or greater number of parliamentary seats.

As a small electoral district, Rize's seat allocation has oscillated between three and four seats over the last two decades.

Rize was the district from which former prime minister Mesut Yılmaz was elected, first for his Anavatan and later as an independent.
