Trends & Key Issues

  • The Congress-led UDF is on a strong wicket.
  • The Left-led LDF is fighting anti-incumbency.
  • The allegations of corruption against defence minister A.K. Antony in the Israeli missile deal failed to take off and is unlikely to impact the UDF prospects.
  • The divide within the CPI(M) has disillusioned the cadre.
  • The church is ranged against the Left.
  • The Ezhava community and the Nairs are pro-UDF.
