THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Former minister and CPM leader A K Balan said that if the LDF wins in Puthupally, then it would be a world wonder. No wonders are happening now, said Balan. The UDF had said that it is the biggest majority in Kerala? Isn't this the constituency Oommen Chandy held for 52 years? Will see whether it will happen.

Meantime, UDF candidate Chandy Oommen is leaping to a big majority in the first poll results. When last reports came in, he has crossed 25,000. He in a Facebook post said that he will get a record majority. ‘49044 +' he wrote on Facebook two hours after the counting of votes started. Even in places where the LDF has a strong influence, Jaick C Thomas is far behind. This time Chandy Oommen has made a big wave in LDF’s Ayarkunnam. BJP is not in the picture at all. The LDF leaders had said right after the polls that Jaick would win if the BJP's votes were not transferred to the UDF.


Counting of votes are held on 20 tables. 14 tables for electronic voting machines, five for postal votes and one for service voters polled through the Electronically Transmitted Postal Ballot System (ETPBS). There are 74 counting officers. 32 CAPF personnel and an armed police battalion have been deployed for the security of the counting centre.
