Kerala local body election results Live Updates: Pinarayi Vijayan's LDF leads in all segment
Kerala local body election 2020:The counting began at 244 centres at 8.00 am and the final results were expected to be out by noon

The counting of votes for the Kerala's local body polls is underway. A total of 21,893 wards in 1,200 local self-governing bodies including 6 corporations, 941 village panchayats, 14 district panchayats and 87 municipalities, went to polls in three phases in the southern state on December 8, 10 and 14.

The counting began at 244 centres at 8.00 am and the final results were expected to be out by noon.

The ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF), which used to showcase a good performance in the civic body polls, banked on the achievements in the development front under the four and half years old rule of Pinarayi Vijayan government.

However, opposition United Democratic Front (UDF), during the campaign, focused on various corruption charges against the government and controversies related to the gold smuggling case.

BJP-NDA is looking to break the decades-old bipolar polity led by UDF and LDF, and is hopeful of showcasing an impressive performance and garner three-fold seats.
