BoundariesEdit

The constituency encompasses all but three union parishads of Narsingdi Sadar Upazila: Amdia, Meher Para, and Panchdona.[2][3]

HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from a Dhaka 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]

Ahead of the 2014 general election, the Election Commission expanded the boundaries of the constituency. Previously it excluded a fourth union parishad of Narsingdi Sadar Upazila: Silmandi.[3][6]
