Thiruvananthapuram Assembly Elections

Swing Meter:

Summary:

Thiruvananthapuram is a classic bellwether district with LDF and UDF virtually splitting the 98 elections since 1982 in half. Bharatiya Janata Party’s biggest bet in 2016, Trivandrum has 4 UDF leaning seats and 3 that lean LDF, including two left bastions of¬†Attingal and Chirayinkeezhu. Half the¬†constituencies have a habit of swinging either way and hence the district more often than not reflects the mood of the state’s electorate.
