BoundariesEdit

HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from the Comilla-3 constituency when the former Comilla District was split into three districts: Brahmanbaria, Comilla, and Chandpur.

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 to include all of the former Brahmanbaria Sadar (which in 2010 had been split into a smaller Brahmanbaria Sadar Upazila and the new Bijoynagar Upazila). Previously the constituency had excluded six union parishads: Budhal, Budhanti, Chandura, Harashpur, Majlishpur, and Purba Talsahar.[3][6]
