From the high-end condominiums of Mont Kiara and Sri Kiara to the middle-class areas of Taman Sri Segambut and Bandar Manjalara, and the rural areas of Segambut Dalam and Kampung Sungai Penchala, the Segambut constituency has a diverse population base.

The constituency was created in 1994 and has been considered to be a Barisan Nasional safe seat until the 2008 General Elections. Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong of Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia (Gerakan) had won the seat the last three terms. However in the 2008 General Elections, Lim Lip Eng from the Democratic Action Party (DAP) won the seat.

There are a total of 59,690 voters in the constituency, of which almost half are Chinese. Areas like Taman Bukit Maluri and Taman Sri Sinar have a high percentage of Chinese voters while areas like Segambut and Taman Bunga, Malay.
