Predictions had suggested that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) may enter the territory after the failure of LDF surfaced the state. The ruling LDF has trailed all seats barring Alappuzha, led by Adv. AM Ariff. Ariff has won the seat by a narrow lead from the Congress’ Adv. Shanimol Osman as of 4 pm updates.

Rahul Gandhi, who contested from Wayanad this year, has swept the floor by a margin of nearly 431,770 votes. While he conceded in his home seat of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, Wayanad has been a huge achievement for the Congress.

Meanwhile, Thiruvananthapuram candidate Shashi Tharoor has also secured votes in his favor. Tharoor contested for the Congress against BJP candidate Kummanam Rajashekharan, who recently resigned as the Mizoram candidate.

The BJP fails to make a mark in Kerala yet again, shortly leading only one seat with a negligible share of votes in all other constituencies.
