HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1978 from the Mymensingh-2 constituency when the former Mymensingh District was split into two districts: Jamalpur and Mymensingh.[4]

Ahead of the 2008 general election, the Election Commission redrew constituency boundaries to reflect population changes revealed by the 2001 Bangladesh census.[5] The 2008 redistricting altered the boundaries of the constituency.[6]

Ahead of the 2014 general election, the Election Commission reduced the boundaries of the constituency. Previously it had included two union parishads of Melandaha Upazila: Mahmudpur and Shaympur.[3][7]
