Kerala Lok Sabha Election 2024: Kannur Lok Sabha Constituency is one of the 20 Lok Sabha Constituencies in Kerala. The Kannur Lok Sabha seat was carved out ahead of 2009 general elections and Kerala’s ruling Communist Party of India (CPI), had won the inaugural election. However, Congress captured the seat in the 2014 polls and has maintained an iron grip over the constituency ever since.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha Election, sitting MP and current incumbent, K Sudhakaran, secured a second consecutive term from the Kannur seat, defeating P. K. Sreemathi Teacher of the CPI(M) by a margin of 94,559 votes.

Amidst a closely contested electoral battle and a healthy 83 percent voter turnout, Sudhakaran retained the seat for the Congress by securing 5,29,741 votes, while Teacher received 4,35,182 votes.

Elections for the Kannur Lok Sabha constituency will be held on April 26, 2024– Phase 2 of Lok Sabha polls– while votes will be counted on June 4 and results declared on the same day.
