Hulu Langat is a district and also a parliamentary constituency located between Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. Being located in the southeast corridor of the Klang Valley, it is quietly booming. The constituency encompasses the Kajang, Semenyih and Dusun Tua state seats.

Residents are lobbying for the proposed light rail transit system with the last stop at Jusco Cheras Selatan in Balakong to be extended to Kajang and linked with the KTM Komuter plying between Seremban and Rawang.
The prolonged issue concerning the Bandar Mahkota Cheras closed access road could be used by the Opposition to swing some votes. The road has been closed since 2005 as the various parties could not reach a compromise.
The delayed Kajang-Semenyih Highway, which was to be completed and opened to traffic seven years ago, could also play on the voters. This highway would have considerably eased traffic in Semenyih.
