The answer to this question a few months before was - Ommen Chandy . But now doubts arise on his victory , owing to the loads of controversies that have struck his alliance .
The invoke of the Kunhalikutty ice cream parlor case , became a major headache for the alliance .
Kannur MP Balakrishan's press conference in which he revealed the fact that he had been an eye witness to supreme court judges receiving bribes also made the party in a weak spot .
The next blow came up when former minister R Balakrishana Pillai was jailed .
To put an icing for all this , The UDF blocked the distribution of rice for Rs 2 to all the families of Kerala . Although it was stopped because it was a move to attract the Kerala citizens for the elections , the poor and needy do feel that their opportunity to get rice at very low rates was tampered . This also may seem to decrease their prospects of swaying off the election results to their side .
V S Achuthanandan seems to be able to attract mass audience for his election propaganda , which proves that people sympathize with his inability to rule properly in the past five years . The dictatorship of Prakash Karat and Pinarayi Vijayan in the Kerala politics , had made Achuthanandan crippled .
Even though these factors have made the chances of UDF dim , it would be very difficult for the LDF also to sway off the results to their side . The most probable outcome of the election would be a hung assembly with the LDF and UDF both holding around 45 percent of the seats .
We can expect a good bargain for both the alliances , after the elections and most probably the date of oath for the ministers is to get postponed .
May 13 would be a great day in the history of Kerala politics as the usual rotation of power among the political alliances is going to crash and new political formulas will come to existence .
