HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from a Sylhet constituency when the former Sylhet District was split into four districts: Sunamganj, Sylhet, Moulvibazar, and Habiganj.[3]

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 2018 general election, the Election Commission reduced the boundaries of the constituency by removing four union parishads of Kamalganj Upazila: Adampur, Alinagar, Islampur, and Shamshernagar.[6][2][7]
