Nearly four and a half decades after the fifth Assembly election in 1977, Kerala has repeated history by re-electing the incumbent government to power. The Left Democratic Front (LDF), led by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) – CPI(M), has won 99 of the 140 Assembly seats in the state to come back to power. The LDF not only won eight seats more than it had secured in the 2016 Assembly election, but managed to increase their vote share. The main opposition – the United Democratic Front (UDF), led by the Congress – won 41 of the seats.
