The state of Sikkim has only one Lok Sabha constituency.

There are a total of 3,70,611 voters in the constituency. Among which, 1,90,886 are male voters and 1,79,725 are female voters.

To recall, the sitting MP Prem Das Rai from SDF defeated SKM's Tek Nath Dhakal by 41,742 votes in the previous elections.

A total of 83% voters cast their vote in these elections.

In what qualifies as a great political thriller, INDRA HANG SUBBA of Sikkim Krantikari Morcha defeated Sikkim Democratic Front's DEK BAHADUR KATWAL by a margin of 12,433. After a close shave, INDRA HANG SUBBA will now govern Sikkim for the next five years.

To win this seat, Indian National Congress fieled Bharat Basnett. On the other hand, Bharatiya Janata Party placed its bet on Laten Sherpa.
