Eastleigh is designated in Parliament by Traditional MP Mims Davies. She was chosen for the first time in the 2015 voting with a majority of 9,147, taking over from Mike Thornton. Mike Thornton was designated in the 2013 by-election after the resignation of Chris Huhne, in a by-election that was methodically boxed with UKIP coming second and the Traditionalists coming third.
In 2005 Huhne had been chosen as the Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament (MP) for the Eastleigh electorate after the former MP discharged. Eastleigh has a practice of close contests, and Huhne narrowly beat the Conservative applicant Conor Burns with the second lowest swing alongside the Liberal Democrats of any seat with a retiring MP. David Chidgey had prospered the Conservative MP Stephen Milligan after his high-profile death. Chris Huhne was selected as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change following the 2010 general election. Huhne reconciled the seat in February 2013 after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice over a 2003 speeding situation.
