Thiruvananthapuram 15-06-2012: R Selvaraj of UDF scripted an emphatic victory in the fiercely fought three-cornered contest in the Neyyattinkara Assembly by-election by defeating his rival candidate F Lawrence by a margin of 6334 votes.
Congress' R. Selvaraj who was trailing in third position as counting began in the morning stole a march over his rivals in the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Chengal and Kulathal panchayats gave him the winning thrust. In the initial rounds Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) candidate F. Lawrence had taken a slender lead. But as counting of votes from the UDF strongholds began Selvaraj surged ahead.
KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala described the UDF victory a strong reply to the ‘politics of murder’ being practiced by the CPI(M) and an expression of the people’s faith in the Oommen Chandy government and the UDF. Mr. Selvaraj himself was of the view that his victory was a response to the politics of violence of the CPI(M).
It was the excellence on governance of UDF that reflected in Neyyatinkara by election just like that of Piravom.  This sounding victory once again confirms the support and belief of the people of Kerala in the Governance of UDF.
