For the 2019 general elections of Dhenkanal, a total of 76% voters got inked.

In what qualifies as a great political thriller, MAHESH SAHOO of Biju Janata Dal defeated Bharatiya Janata Party's RUDRA NARAYAN PANY by a margin of 35,412. After a close shave, MAHESH SAHOO will now govern Dhenkanal for the next five years.

Bahujan Samaj Party fieled Pradyumna Kumar Naik while the Bharatiya Janata Party placed its bet on Rudranarayan Pany, and the Indian National Congress chose Raja Kamakhya Prasad Singh Deo as their candidate.
