The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, does not have a strong presence in the state.

Election History

Since the formation of the state, Kerala has witnessed 13 legislatures. The first legislative assembly was formed on 5 April 1957 with 127 members. Subsequently, more districts were added to the state of Kerala, thereby the number of members going up to 141, including a nominated member. Though the state has come under the President's rule four times since its formation, the two major political parties i.e. the Congress and the Left continued to slug it out for the top post. The first Chief Minister of Kerala was CPI's EMS Namboodiripad. The incumbent Congress has governed the state for ten terms since its formation, with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy presiding over his second term. The last assembly elections held in 2011, saw a close contest between the two coalitions. The Congress-led UDF beat the LDF by a margin of just four seats. The UDF bagged 72 seats, while the LDF clinched a close 68. Oommen Chandy faced stiff competition from V S Achuthanandan, who governed the state from 2006 to 2011.

The 2014 general elections were the state's 16th Lok Sabha elections. The first general election in Kerala was held in 1951, in which INC came out victorious.

INC has been in majority in the state, either individually or in an alliance as the UDF, in 1962, 1971, 1977, 1984, 1989 and 1991.
