Election History

The political scene of Tripura has been dominated by the CPI(M) and INC. Though the CPI(M) has emerged as the most powerful party in the state in recent times. The INC won the first three assembly elections and was in power from 1963 to 1971 and from 1972 to 1977. From 1977 to 1978 the state witnessed political instability. The short-lived Janata Dal and left coalition government gave two Chief Ministers within a span of eight months. In the elections held in 1978, the CPI(M) came to power for the first time. The Left rule was followed by five years of Congress rule from 1988 to 1993. In the seventh assembly elections held in 1993, CPI(M) emerged victorious and has been in power in the state since then by winning the 8th, 9th and 10th assembly elections as well.

INC won both the seats in the 4th Lok Sabha elections held in 1967. In the 5th, 7th and 8th Lok Sabha elections, the CPI(M) claimed both seats while in the 6th Lok Sabha, the seats were divided between INC and Congress for Democracy (CFD) party. The INC won both constituencies in the 9th and 10th Lok Sabha elections.
