The Kallakurichi Lok Sabha seat in Tamil Nadu was formed after the restructuring of parliamentary constituencies in 2008.

The DMK won the Kallakurichi Lok Sabha seat in the 2009 Lok Sabha election and the ruling AIADMK in the next polls in 2014.

This year, Gautham Sigamani of the DMK will contest the Lok Sabha election. The DMDK deputy general secretary LK Sudhish, who is also party founder Vijayakant’s brother-in-law, is the AIADMK-BJP alliance’s candidate from Kallakurichi, the heartland of the dominant OBC Vanniar community, which became the 33rd district of Tamil Nadu in January 2019.
