Idukki has been a Congress bastion for decades since 1977. The Congress hold on the constituency was finally broken in 1999 by K Francis George of the Kerala Congress (Joseph) group that broke the UDF monopoly in the constituency.
In 2009, the Congress, riding on PT Thomas, managed to recapture the constituency, only to lose it in 2014 to the LDF which fielded independent candidate Joice George.
Though P T Thomas of the Congress reclaimed the constituency in 2009, the LDF recaptured it by fielding Joice George, an Independent, in 2014.
