HistoryEdit

The constituency was created for the first general elections in newly independent Bangladesh, held in 1973.

Ahead of the 2008 general election, the Election Commission redrew constituency boundaries to reflect population changes revealed by the 2001 Bangladesh census.[4] The 2008 redistricting added 7 new seats to the Dhaka metropolitan area, increasing the number of constituencies in the capital from 8 to 15,[5] and reducing the extent of the constituency.

The seat became vacant upon the death of the sitting MP Mizanur Rahman Khan Dipu on 21 December 2013.[6] It was filled in the 2014 general election two weeks later.

In the 2018 general election, the constituency was one of six chosen by lottery to use electronic voting machines.[7]
