2024 Elections:

Thrissur, a pivotal constituency in Kerala, is set to witness an intense electoral battle. The 2019 general elections saw significant political engagement, and the 2024 elections promise to be equally, if not more, competitive.

In a surprising turn of events for the 2024 elections, the Congress campaign in Thrissur faced an unexpected twist. Initially, Congress workers had begun campaigning for the sitting MP TN Prathapan. However, the landscape shifted dramatically when K Muraleedharan, the current Vadakara MP, was announced as the Congress candidate for Thrissur. 

On the BJP front, actor-politician Suresh Gopi is once again in the fray, aiming to secure a win in one of the BJP's most promising constituencies in Kerala. The Left Front has reinforced its position by nominating VS Sunil Kumar, a prominent CPI leader in Thrissur district and former Minister of Agriculture in the first Pinarayi government.

2019 Elections:

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Thrissur constituency saw a fierce battle between TN Prathapan of the Congress, Rajaji Mathew Thomas of the CPI, and Suresh Gopi of the BJP. Despite a vigorous campaign by Suresh Gopi, TN Prathapan achieved a decisive win with a substantial margin of 93,633 votes. Prathapan received 415,089 votes out of the 1,042,122 total votes cast in Thrissur. Rajaji Mathew Thomas secured 321,456 votes, while Suresh Gopi garnered 293,822 votes. The voter turnout in Thrissur for 2019 was 77.94%.
