Zamboanga Sibugay was formerly part of Zamboanga del Sur. Attempts to divide Zamboanga del Sur into separate provinces date as far back as the 1960s. Several bills were filed in the Philippine Congress, but remained unacted. The new province was finally created by Republic Act No. 8973[2] passed on November 7, 2000 and signed into law by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on February 24, 2001. Zamboanga del Sur Third District Representative George Hofer was elected as its first governor in 2001.

In the 2010 local elections, Governor Hofer's daughter, Dulce Ann Hofer, the incumbent Second District Representative, lost the gubernatorial race to Rommel Jalosjos. In the 2013 elections, Dulce Ann Hofer resoundly defeated Romeo Jalosjos, Jr. in the congressional race and former Diplahan mayor Wilter Palma defeated Rommel Jalosjos.
