BoundariesEdit

The constituency encompasses Saturia Upazila and all but the three southernmost union parishads of Manikganj Sadar Upazila: Bhararia, Hati Para, and Putail.[2][3]

HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from the Dhaka-3 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.[4] The 2008 redistricting altered the boundaries of the constituency.[5]
