Description[edit]

The 8th constituency of Val-de-Marne sits in the north of the department, on the border with Paris and just south of the Bois de Vincennes. The constituency was enlarged as a result of the 2010 redistricting of French legislative constituencies to include the canton of Joinville-le-Pont.
