Traditionally a citadel of the Left Front, Manbazar has now turned into a stronghold of the Trinamool Congress (TMC). Though TMC is faced with anti-incumbency, the CPM is still not liked by the minority and tribal people. This enables the TMC to be on a strong wicket. In the coming 2016 assembly elections, Manbazar will witness a close contest in which the TMC enjoys edge. BJP though buoyed by its performance in 2014, will hope to make the contest triangular.
|Name of the Candidate||Party Name||Results|
|Sandhya Rani Tudu||AITC||Won
|Gouri Singh Sardar||BJP||8866|
|Bivisan Sing Sardar||AJSU Party||1806|
Currently, Manbazar is represented in the Legislative Assembly by TMC whose member Sandhyarani Tudu won the seat by defeating his CPM candidate Himani Hansda by a comfortable margin of 5166 votes in a bipolar contest. In that election, while Sandhyarani Tudu secured 78520 votes, 73354 votes were polled by the CPM nominee who was followed by BJP‘s Gouri Sardar who received 4,476 votes.
Earlier CPM’s Kamala Kanta Mahata had represented Manbazar from 1982 to 2001.
