This refers to the eastern part of the Kochi city in Kerala.It is the most urban and developed part of Kochi.The name arrives from the famous Lord Shiva temple present there called Ernakulatthapan Temple. It is the commercial capital of the whole Kerala.It is believed by many of the people that "Ernakulam" was derived from the Malayalam words "Erenaal" and "Kulam" which means "Pond for long time".

Ernakulam's importance lies in the fact that it is regarded as a major economic hub due to the varied trading & industrial units in the constituency. It is also one of the main districts which forms Central Kerala, the other two being Thrissur and Palakkad.
At the Elections
As a Lok Sabha Constituency Ernakulam has seen the dominance of the Indian National Congress (INC), which has won the seat 9 times of the 13 times elections have taken place here. In the last elections in 2009, Kuruppassery Varkey Thomas was the winner, winning with 3,42,845 votes. A retired Professor by profession, K.V. Thomas is currently the Union Minister of State, (Independent Charge) Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and Member, Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs. His nearest rival in the 2009 elections was Sindhu Joy of the CPI(M), who got 3,31,055 votes. An interesting snippet: Sindhu Joy left CPI(M) to join INC & later resigned as Chairperson of Kerala State Youth Commission. She was one of the 3 finalists on the Malayalam version of the TV reality show Big Boss (it was called Malayalee House). Supposedly at present she is not on the political scene. Perhaps she is biding her time, waiting for some party to woo her & give her a ticket for the forthcoming elections?
Ernakulam is constantly at the centre of the State's news for some reason or the other, more so for vastly contrasting news! On the one hand, it was declared the best District Panchayat in the State under the Rajiv Gandhi Panchayat Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (RGPSA) of the Union Ministry of Panchayati Raj. The reason for this honour was the implementation of various projects including seed farming, school infrastructure projects, introducing top notch facilities at Aluva Hospital, awareness campaigns in against cyber crimes, etc. On the other hand, it also got the dubious distinction of topping the list of having the maximum number of financial fraud cases in the State (Kerala itself being the second ranked in the country).
With the Lok Sabha elections just a few months away, there is a lot happening with politicians trying to be in the media spotlight. The issue of the best way to deal with the menace of stray dogs in the district has been taken up by K.V. Thomas. Minister for Urban Affairs Manjalamkuzhi Ali (of the Indian Union Muslim League) has announced the setting up of a garbage treatment plant in Ernakulam within 6 months. MP P. Rajeev (of the CPI(M) party) has spoken up in support of former Supreme Court judge V.R. Krishna Iyer's call for the redevelopment of Ernakulam Railway Goods (ERG) station into a passenger terminus. At another event, District Collector P I Sheik Pareeth declared the district will be free of tobacco advertisements.
2014 Lok Sabha Elections
The newest National Party, the Aam Admi Party (AAP) has already issued a clear statement that it will field a candidate in the Ernakulam constituency. A major party like the BJP may not have made a major impression here, but the AAP may well do so. Another new party which has jumped into the fray is the Nav Bharat Democratic Party which was launched in September last year. It has announced lawyer George Merlo Pallath as its Ernakulam candidate for the Lok Sabha 2014 elections. He is presently holding the post of President of Ernakulam Bar association.
New parties like these may swing away the votes from INC and CPI(M), but what matters above all is garnering the votes of the Catholic community. It is a well-known fact of Ernakulam's political history that religion plays a major role in the political power of the district. In the last election, voters were called upon to elect those who "side with God".
With such religious undercurrents running through the election scenario, it is obvious that the candidate who gets these all-important votes is more likely to win this constituency seat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections than the one who underestimates the power of the Catholic votes.
