Sebastian Paul


Dr. Sebastian Paul (born 1 May 1947) is a member of the 14th Lok Sabha of India. He represents the Ernakulam constituency of Kerala.

Dr. Paul made his electoral debut in the 1996 Lok Sabha byelections in Ernakulam (Lok Sabha Constituency) when he defeated Antony Isaac of the INC. The byelection was necessitated by the demise of the sitting MP, Xavier Arackal. He was defeated by K.V. Thomas in a byelection to the Assembly in 1997. In 1998, he unsuccessfully contested against George Eden, conceding a margin of nearly 75,000 votes. In the same year, in the byelections to the Assembly (caused by the resignation of George Eden who was the sitting MLA) from the Ernakulam constituency, Mr. Paul defeated Leno Jacob of the Congress and was a member of the Assembly for three years. In the 2001 Assembly elections, he was defeated by Prof. Thomas by a margin of 11,844 votes. In the byelections held last September (caused by the demise of George Eden) to Parliament, Dr. Paul notched up victory by a margin of 20,000 votes over M.O. John in an election that witnessed the nadir of group politics of the Congress and the UDF.

He is also wellknown as a media critic and cultural activist.
