The French-speaking electoral college is one of three constituencies of the European Parliament in Belgium. It currently elects 9 MEPs using the d'Hondt method of party-list proportional representation.


The constituency generally corresponds to the French Community of Belgium, but electors in Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde have a choice between the lists of both electoral colleges (Dutch-speaking or French-speaking).
