The German-speaking electoral college is one of three constituencies of the European Parliament in Belgium. It currently elects 1 MEP by first past the post.

This is the European Parliament's smallest constituency, with an electorate at the 2004 election of just 46,914. Since the German-speaking electoral college elects only one member, the winner is effectively chosen by the first past the post method. This makes it, together with the Kuyavian-Pomerian constituency in Poland, the only European Parliament constituency without proportional representation.

Boundaries

The constituency corresponds to the German-speaking Community of Belgium.
