Description:
Montgomeryshire () is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election.

The Montgomeryshire Welsh Assembly constituency was created with the same boundaries in 1999.

Boundaries

The seat is based on the ancient county of Montgomeryshire, in the principal area of Powys. One of the UK's most rural and isolated constituencies, it has also been one of the small handful of seats that the Lib Dems (formerly the Liberal Party) could call safe, before a loss to the Conservatives in the 2010 General Election. Apart from this and a Conservative victory in the 1979 general election, Montgomeryshire has elected Liberal or Liberal-affiliated candidates since 1880. The seat was officially known as Montgomery before 1997.
