Telugu Desam, which won in 19 ZPTCs has a clear chance to get the zilla parishad chairman post due to New Democracy’ s stand to keep a distance to the election. Elections were held to 44 ZPTCs in the district and TD won 22 seats followed by YSRC six and Congress 11 seats.

CPI-M obtained two and CPI (New Democracy) ML won three seats. But, seven mandals such as Bhadrachalam, Burgumpahad, VR Puram, Kunavaram, Chintoor, Kunavaram and Kukkunoor have been transferred to Andhra Pradesh for facilitating to construct Polavaram Project.
