Chief Minister

V. S. Achuthanandan
LDF

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) -led Left Democratic Front beat the incumbent Indian National Congress-led United Democratic Front by a margin of 56 seats. V. S. Achuthanandan, who led the CPI(M) was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Kerala on 18 May 2006.

BackgroundEdit

The UDF led government headed by A. K. Antony had won the previous elections held in 2001 by winning 99 seats. He later resigned on 28 August 2004 after UDF's dismal performance in Kerala for the Lok Sabha election that year, winning just one seat.[1] Oommen Chandy replaced him later on 31 August.
