An independent candidate, S.J. Jaganath won the first elections held in this constituency in 1967. When it became the Panaji parliamentary constituency from the Lok Sabha elections in 1971 to 2004, this constituency remained an important seat not only of the Congress, but also of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP). The BJP has a strong hold on the North Goa constituency for the last three consecutive Lok Sabha sessions.
