Kerala Election Results 2021 Live Updates: Buy Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, led by LDF, looks set to return to Kerala as the counting of votes for the 140-seat assembly is underway. Strong rooms in the state opened in the morning on Sunday, in which the votes were counted first. Election is important for both alliances as Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan wants to remain in power and Congress is trying to win power in the state. Since Kerala is the only left-ruled state in the country and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi led the Kerala campaign for the Congress, these elections are important for the political future of both parties. If the Congress-led coalition wins, it will be the sixth state in the country to be ruled by a grand old party.
Like Tamil Nadu before 2016, Kerala has always voted to change governments in the state every five years. But if the exit poll gets anything, Vijayan can stay in power, which would be a break in tradition. Although the BJP led an aggressive campaign in the state, no exit poll has predicted more than three to five seats for it in the state.
Political observer NM Pearson told, “The most important aspect of the assembly election in Kerala is that it can determine the future course of action on the three major political fronts. Therefore, it is important for all of them. “
Meanwhile, the Kerala High Court asked the police and district collectors to ensure that there is no assembly in the state for four days in relation to the counting of votes for the assembly elections to be held from May 1 to May 4. The court has banned the victory processions of political parties in view of the rise of Kovid across the state and the country.
