BoundariesEdit

The constituency encompasses Sreepur Upazila and two union parishads of Gazipur Sadar Upazila: Bhawal Gor and Pirujali.[2]

HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from the Dhaka-23 constituency when the former Dhaka District was split into six districts: Manikganj, Munshiganj, Dhaka, Gazipur, Narsingdi, and Narayanganj.

Ahead of the 2008 general election, the Election Commission redrew constituency boundaries to reflect population changes revealed by the 2001 Bangladesh census.[3] The 2008 redistricting added a fifth seat to Gazipur District and altered the boundaries of Gazipur-3.[4]
