The polling, which began on a dull note, picked up momentum as the day progressed.

The highest voter turnout was reported from Parur (70.87 per cent) and the lowest from Mattancherry (59.53 per cent).

Seven candidates, including M O John (United Democratic Front) and Sebastian Paul (Left Democratic Front-backed independent), were in the fray.

The election was necessitated following the death of sitting MP, George Eden.
