By Express News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM leader K Sreekumar will be the Left front’s candidate for the Thiruvananthapuram corporation mayor election to be held on Tuesday.
The mayor’s election was necessitated after incumbent VK Prasanth was elected legislator from Vattiyoorkavu assembly constituency in the recent byelections.
BJP would be fielding its senior leader MR Gopan for mayor’s post, while the UDF candidate is most likely to be Anil Kumar of the Congress.
While the LDF have 43 councillors in the corporation, the BJP has 35 and the UDF 21.
The move was dropped fearing political backlash in the ensuing local body polls.
