Pinarayi Vijayan chosen CM over Achutanandan

Sat, May 21, 2016, 11:34 AM
Pinarayi Vijayan would be sworn in as Kerala's 22nd Chief Minister in Thiruvananthapuram on May 25.

The CPI-M led Left Democratic Front (LDF) won the polls on Thursday by winning 91 seats in the 140-member Kerala Assembly.

The date was confirmed by Vijayan after Saturday's meeting with veteran party colleague V.S.Achuthanandan along with CPI-M state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

"He (Achuthanandan) has been the Chief Minister from our party in the past and hence I came to meet him. As things stand now, we have decided to have the swearing-in of the new government on Wednesday (May 25) at the Central Stadium," Vijayan said.

"Discussions have begun on finalising the ministers in our party and in the coming days the list will be ready," he added.

Vijayan was elected to lead at a meeting of his party leadership on Friday.
