Counting underway for Kerala by-polls, CPI-M candidate takes early lead
Election experts predicted that the signs were positive for Cherian as compared to the 2016 Assembly polls when the Communist Party of India-Marxist candidate had a lead of only 400 votes.
"The signs are good and victory is becoming clear because I have led in all the 14 booths which include strongholds of the Congress-led UDF," said Cherian.
Congress candidate D. Vijayakumar is the second position followed by the BJP's P.S.Sreedharan Pillai.
The by-polls for the Chengannur Assembly seat was necessitated following the death of CPI-M legislator K.K. Ramachandran Nair in January.
Voting for the seat took place on Monday.
