No seat for PC George, JSS

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The LDF meeting has decided not to give seats to former government chief whip P C George or the JSS led by K R Gouri Amma.  

George had asked for Poonjar seat but four seats including Poonjar seat were given to Francis George-led Democratic Kerala Congress. Thus Francis George will contest from Idukki, P C Joseph from Poonjar, Dr K C Joseph from Changanassery and Antony Raju from Thiruvananthapuram.

Though Gouri Amma had gone all over the way to the AKG centre demanding seats, the CPM decided against giving her party seats.

CPM candidates and CPM-backed independent candidates will contest in 92 seats. CPI (27), Janata Dal (S)-5, NCP-4, RSP (Kovoor group)-1, INL-3, Congress (S)-1, Scaria Thomas -1, Kerala Congress (B) -1, CMP- 1 are the seat shares.
