Administrative structure



The state of Kerala has a unicameral legislature with Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha). Like all other states the state has a parliamentary system of governance. The executive authority lies with the council of ministers headed by the Chief Minister. The Governor who is the titular head of the state is elected by the President of India. The High Court in Ernakulam (near Kochi) is headed by a Chief Justice. Below the High Court are district courts, subdivisional courts, munsifs' (subordinate judicial officers') courts, and munsif-magistrate courts. The state is divided into districts, which are further divided into talukas (subdivisions) and villages.

Issues of the state



The plight of the tribals in Kerala is not known to many. Most of the tribes are far from development and education. The Cholanaikkan, Ernadan, Alar, Adiyar and Paniyar are some of the poorest tribes. Poverty and illiteracy are the factors that keep them poor and unwanted. Tribal children should be encouraged for education. They need proper infrastructural facilities. Many people die because of malnutrition, ignorance and superstitious beliefs. There is a need to provide better health facilities. The historical legacy of caste and ethnic discrimination is visible in many spheres of Kerala's development process.

Major Political Parties of Kerala



There are two major political fronts in the state: the Left Democratic Front (LDF) and the United Democratic Front (UDF). The major parties in Kerala are:
  • Communist Party ofIndia(Marxist)
  • Communist Party ofIndia
  • Indian National Congress
  • Indian Union Muslim League
  • Kerala Congress

During the last Lok Sabha election of 2009, the INC won 13 seats, the CPIM 4 seats, the Muslim League Kerala State Committee 2 seats, and the Kerala Congress (M) 1 seat.
