LDF Maintains Lead In Kerala Civic Body Polls

Thiruvananthapuram: The Left Democratic Front (LDF) maintained its winning streak in the civic body elections in Kerala, in a morale booster for the CPM-led political grouping ahead of crucial assembly polls early next year.

The LDF usually fares well in the local body polls and 2020 was no different. Barring municipalities, the LDF dominated and strengthened its position, at a time when the CPM-led state government is facing allegations of corruption in the gold smuggling case, which was also an election issue in the polls.

However, its superior performance in the panchayat polls may have dented the ability of the Congress and BJP to pose a challenge in the scheduled April/May assembly elections.

As per State Election Commission data, the LDF was leading or had won 514 out of 941 gram panchayats in the state, 108 out of 152 block panchayats, 10 out of 14 district panchayats, 35 out of 86 municipalities and three out of six corporations, at the time of going to press.

“Thank you, Kerala. Thank you for reposing faith in LDF. We are humbled by the trust and the confidence of the people of Kerala. This is a victory for secularism and inclusive development,” Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said in a Twitter post.
