On 8 October, Luxembourg held parliamentary elections to elect all 60 seats of the Chamber of Deputies.
ALDE Party member Demokratesch Partei (DP) received 18.7% of the popular vote, an increase of almost two points from the 16.91% received in the last elections in 2018.
Liberals strengthened their representation in the house by winning an additional two seats and bringing their total number of MPs up to 14.

Current Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and finance minister Yuriko Backes, DP’s two lead candidates, were re-elected respectively receiving the first and third most votes out of all candidates standing in the Centre constituency.
Party leader Lex Delles, the incumbent Minister for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Minister for Tourism, also retained his seat in the East constituency.
Elsewhere, ministers Max Hahn (Family and Integration; Greater Region) and Claude Meisch (Education, Children and Youth; Higher Education and Research) were re-elected in the South constituency.
Finally, Lydie Polfer, previously an MP, MEP, Minister and deputy Prime Minister, returns to the Chamber representing the Centre constituency, ten years after taking over from Prime Minister Bettel the role of Mayor of Luxembourg City.
Incredible results for @Xavier_Bettel, @Yuriko_Backes and the @dp_lu so far.— Christos Floros (@ChristosFloros) October 8, 2023
