Fronts sure of victory though concerns about undercurrents remain


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The fronts are gripped by the fact that the aggressiveness of the strong triangular fight seen during the campaign is not reflected in the polls. That is why there is concern about the undercurrents. Although the turnout was not as high as expected, the parties are counting on a relatively better turnout in the Assembly elections.

The analysis is done by collecting data up to the booth level. The fronts will move on to the detailed discussions after the Vishu holidays. The outcome in Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha and Thrissur districts will be crucial for both the Left and Right Fronts as they will influence the determination of power. These are the districts that defeated the UDF last time ...

The LDF calculates above 90 seats

The CPM's initial assessment is that the Left Front will win seats ranging from 85 to 90 and above. Most of the sitting seats will be retained. Some will give up, while others will be captured. There will be no significant fluctuations in Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha and Thrissur districts. The CPM, which expects a better result in Thiruvananthapuram than last time, claims that 12 out of 14 will definitely be won including the Nemom seat. K Muraleedharan of the Congress will end at third place. Status quo will be maintained in Kollam and Alappuzha. The influence of the Kerala Congress-M in Kottayam and Idukki will be beneficial. The front's power in Malabar will be maintained. It is hoped that the minority sentiment on the issue of CAA will be positive.

UDF hopes for win in 75 - 85 seats

The UDF estimates that it will win back most of the sitting seats of the Left Front. It will make a strong comeback in the crucial Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha and Thrissur districts. K Muraleedharan will win in Nemom. Thiruvananthapuram 6-7, Kollam 5-6, Alappuzha 3-4, Pathanamthitta 3-4 and Thrissur 5-6. The league will continue to advance in Malappuram. There will be unexpected progress in Kozhikode. Religious minorities seeking the return of the Congress will support the front. The presence of Rahul and Priyanka during the campaign will be beneficial.

NDA says it will win up to seven seats

The NDA hopes for seven seats, including Nemom. In Vattiyoorkavu, the silent wave will be favorable where the fight was on par with the Left Front. There is also hope for victory in Kazhakoottam. Manjeswaram, Konni, Malampuzha and Thrissur can be captured. Religious minorities won't significantly oppose. There is a positive movement in the Christian community.
