Udupi Chikmagalur Lok Sabha constituency is one of the 28 Lok Sabha (lower house of Indian parliament) constituencies in Karnataka a state in southern India. This constituency was created as part of the implementation of the delimitation of the parliamentary constituencies in 2008, based on the recommendations of the Delimitation Commission of India constituted in 2002.[2][3] It first held elections in 2009 and its first member of parliament was D. V. Sadananda Gowda of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Gowda was selected on 4 August 2011 to become Chief Minister (CM) of Karnataka after the previous CM B. S. Yeddyurappa resigned.[4] He therefore had to resign as MP for this seat which forced a by-election in 2012.[5] This by-election was won by K. Jayaprakash Hegde of the Indian National Congress (INC). As of the latest elections in 2014, Shobha Karandlaje of the BJP represents this constituency.
