Election History

In the elections to the state legislative assembly, INC was victorious from 1947 to 1967. But since 1967, Dravidian parties began to dominate state politics. DMK was the first Dravidian party to assume power in 1967, and remained in power till 1977. Differences within DMK led to the formation of AIADMK by M.G. Ramachandran. He led his party to victory in the 1977, 1980 and 1984 assembly elections. DMK won the 1989 elections but could not complete its full term. In 1991 elections AIADMK emerged victorious. Since then, DMK has won the 1996 and 2006 assembly elections while AIADMK returned to power in 2001 and 2011. In 2011 elections AIADMK and its allies won 203 seats out of 234 seats, making J. Jayalalithaa as the CM.

Since the 1990s caste based parties have gained prominence in the state and are slowly challenging the dominance of DMK and AIADMK. In the elections to the Lok Sabha till 1962, INC was the leading party. But its performance dropped sharply in the 1967 while this election marked the rise of the DMK. The AIADMK made its presence felt in 1977. INC made a comeback in the 1984 elections and gave a steady performance in 1989 and 1991. But in 1999 elections INC won only two seats. BJP won four seats, its best performance in the state till date. In 2004, the main battle was between DMK and INC while in 2009 it was between DMK and AIADMK.
