It includes the cantons of Luxembourg and Mersch, both of which are in the former district of Luxembourg.

Centre currently elects 21 deputies. Under Luxembourg's electoral system, which is a form of the Hagenbach-Bischoff System, that means that each voter can cast votes for up to 21 different candidates. Voting in Luxembourg is compulsory.
