Thiruvananthapuram, 12 March,Sreeparvathy K.: CPI(M) candidates for Lok Sabha election will not be changed amid the protests from local committees. The party meeting decided to go ahead with the candidates AN Shamseer from Vadakara, actor Innocent from Chalakkudy and Christy Fernadez in Ernakulam along with other listed candidates.
MA Baby will contest the election from Kollam even though its ally RSP left the front and joined congress led UDF. LDF estimate that RSP is capable of winning only 12,000 votes and thus MA Baby can easily win the Kollam constituency.
The Party Meeting also decided to take back CPI(M) candidate K Harikumar from Kottayam if it’s ally Janatha Dal(S) decides Mathew T Thomas as candidate. They also decided to support Francis George in Idukki constituency if he decides to contest the election as an independent candidate.
