The union territory of Lakshadweep has only one Lok Sabha constituency.

The total number of voters from the constituency are 49,922. Of them, 25,433 and 24,489 are male and female voters respectively.

Polling for Lakshadweep was held on Apr 11. In the last elections, NCP's sitting MP Mohammed Faizal PP defeated INC's Md. Hamdullah Sayeed by a small margin of 1,535 votes.

A total of 87% voters cast their vote in these elections.

In what qualifies as a great political thriller, MOHAMMED FAIZAL PP of Nationalist Congress Party defeated Indian National Congress's HAMDULLAH SAYEED by a margin of 823. After a close shave, MOHAMMED FAIZAL PP will now govern Lakshadweep for the next five years.

Indian National Congress fieled Muhammed Hamdullah Sayeed while the Bharatiya Janata Party placed its bet on Abdul Khader Haji, and the Janata Dal (United) chose Dr. Mohammed Sadique KP as their candidate.
