Zonguldak is an electoral district of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. It elects 5 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. Zonguldak was once represented by as many as twelve MPs, although this has dropped today to five seats, its lowest level yet.
