Election History

 1984: S. Krishna Kumar, Indian National Congress

 1989: S. Krishna Kumar, Indian National Congress

 1991: S. Krishna Kumar, Indian National Congress

 1996: N.K. Premachandran, Revolutionary Socialist Party

 2004: P. Rajendran, Communist Party of India (Marxist)

In 2004 Mr. P. RAJENDARAN (CPM) got elected with a margin of 111071 votes. When he bagged 3,55,279 votes his nearest contender Sooranadu Rajasekharan of Congress managed to get only 2,44,208 votes.

This time around Rajendran is  confident of retaining his seat as he believes that his success in spending the MP fund most effectively in his consistency has  earned him the tag of the most efficient MP from Kollam.

Congress was expected to field a very strong candidate to deny him an easy win,  but the groupism within the party made KPCC to bow down before the demand of K. Karunakaran in gifting the seat to his close hanger-on Peethambarakurup. Kurup is emerging in the election battlefield for the first time.

In addition to this due to the changed political scenario in the state with PDP votes are expected to do tricks in Kollam, Chattannur and Eravipuram assembly segment. This is hugely going to benefit the sitting MP Rajendran as he is all set to retain his position in the 15th Loksabha.
