Kerala Elections 2019

Kerala goes to the polls on April 23 which is the 3rd phase of Lok Sabha elections. Around 2.54 crore voters in the state, 1.3 crore women and 1.2 crore men will be electing 20 MPs from the state known for its beautiful backwaters. Results of the Lok Sabha Elections will be announced on May 23, 2019, with the counting of votes taking place on the same day.

There are three major political fronts in Kerala, Communist Party of India(Marxist)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF), Indian National Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF), and BJP. In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the UDF alliance won 12 seats, while the LDF got the remaining eight, with the BJP managing to finish second at the Thiruvananthapuram constituency. Sabarimala issue will be a key topic debated through the state, since the Kerala witnessed large scale protests and violence by devotees and right-wing activists after the implementation of Supreme Court's verdict, allowing women of all ages to enter the Sabarimala temple. The election will be an acid test for BJP, whether the people of the state are attracted the hindutva ideology or not.
