Noakhali-1 is a constituency represented in the Jatiya Sangsad (National Parliament) of Bangladesh since 2014 by H. M. Ibrahim of the Awami League.

Boundaries[edit]

The constituency encompasses Chatkhil Upazila and all but three union parishads of Sonaimuri Upazila: Ambarnagar, Baragaon, and Nateshwar.[2][3]

History[edit]

The constituency was created for the first general elections in newly independent Bangladesh, held in 1973.

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]
