Trabzon is an electoral district of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. It elects 6 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.


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. Trabzon's seat allocation has fluctuated over the last thirty years between six, seven and eight seats. This was last revised downwards to 6 seats ahead of the 2011 vote.

There are currently six sitting members of parliament representing Trabzon: four from the governing party and two from opposition parties.
