An individual contesting the election as an independent is because he is not able to come up in an organisation and he do not want to be under any discipline of an organisation. Is it in any body's interest to elect one who is indiscipline? Apart from the individuals and fragmented parties what is the alternative available to us?
At present we have only the UDF and LDF. Which ever of these 2 comes to power there is not much to be done as the daily activities of the Government is taken care of by the officials. However there should be a legislative authority to pass the acts and supervise the functioning of the Government. If we are to elect the same group continuously, there might be a tendency for them to take us for granted.
Hence in the present circumstances there is nothing wrong in selecting the 2 groups by rotation.

But when it comes to voting sometimes we have to look into the past activities of the candidates and then vote . We may not look into the fact that whether they are in this party or that . Most Keralites will think about their personal benefits . If one feels that his salary may increase , or he can obtian an out of time promotion , or that his children will get more mraks and perhaps pass , if one party comes to power , he will go for it .
Personal interests and realtions do influence some of the votes .
But then the majority often take it as a test or to teach a lesson to the present government and opt for the other
In Kerala there is no chance for a third front in the present scenario .
