Kerala--23/Apr----







Kerala has a unicameral government with 141 members, where 140 are elected and one is nominated from the Anglo-Indian community of the state. Though the Governor is the constitutional head of the state, the real executive powers lie in the hands of the Chief Minister and the Cabinet. The state represents 20 seats in the Lok Sabha, and nine seats in the Rajya Sabha. Politics in the state is dominated by two major political parties, the Indian National Congress (INC) led by the United Democratic Front (UDF), and the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPIM) led by the Left Democratic Front (LDF). The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, does not have a strong presence in the state.

In their manifesto, the people of Kerala have expressed a need for better healthcare, and the Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), that criminalizes homosexuality to be repealed.

Election History

Since the formation of the state, Kerala has witnessed 13 legislatures. The first legislative assembly was formed on 5 April 1957 with 127 members. Subsequently, more districts were added to the state of Kerala, thereby the number of members going up to 141, including a nominated member. Though the state has come under the President's rule four times since its formation, the two major political parties i.e. the Congress and the Left continued to slug it out for the top post. The first Chief Minister of Kerala was CPI's EMS Namboodiripad. The incumbent Congress has governed the state for ten terms since its formation, with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy presiding over his second term. The last assembly elections held in 2011, saw a close contest between the two coalitions. The Congress-led UDF beat the LDF by a margin of just four seats. The UDF bagged 72 seats, while the LDF clinched a close 68. Oommen Chandy faced stiff competition from V S Achuthanandan, who governed the state from 2006 to 2011.

The 2014 general elections were the state's 16th Lok Sabha elections. The first general election in Kerala was held in 1951, in which INC came out victorious. The Left (CPI and CPM) dominated the state in the second, fourth and seventh Lok Sabha polls, held in 1957, 1967 and 1980, respectively. INC has been in majority in the state, either individually or in an alliance as the UDF, in 1962, 1971, 1977, 1984, 1989 and 1991. In the 2009 general elections, a total number of 1,59,94,420 valid votes were counted, which saw a landslide victory of the UDF, and it continues to be in power. The much-awaited Lok Sabha elections took place on 10 April 2014 in Kerala. As per the Election Commission of India, counting took place on 16 May 2014.
