Once upon a time, Amalapuram was a Congress stronghold with wins in the 1962, 1967, 1971 and 1980 Lok Sabha elections. Since, however, TDP has registered strong performances and has mostly swapped power here with Congress.

In 2014 Lok Sabha election, TDP's Pandula Ravindra Babu secured 53.04 per cent of the votes to help his party cross the finish line. He received 1,20,576 more votes than YSRCP's Pinipe Viswarupu. Congress' Butchi Maheswara Rao was left licking his wounds at the third spot with a humiliating 12,182 votes in his favour.
