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.

State Legislative Assembly of Kerala

On 5 April 1957 the first legislative assembly was formed in Kerala. Initially, the total number of assembly seats was 127, which was later increased to 140 after the formation of Kasargod and Malappuram districts.

BJP-called shutdown in Kerala cripples normal life
January 27, 2015 01:41 PM
A state-wide dawn-to-dusk shutdown in Kerala called by the BJP on Tuesday demanding the resignation of the state finance minister left most of the roads deserted and shopping and commercial establishments shut. The Bharatiya Janata Party in the state, where it is yet to open its account in the 140-member assembly, has demanded that Finance Minister K.M. Mani should step down following allegations levelled by whistleblower bar owner Biju Ramesh that Mani was given Rs.1 crore as the first instalment of the Rs.5 crore he demanded to help reopen bars in the state. The shutdown on Tuesday has turned out to be a nightmare for those who arrived at the airports, railway and bus stations across the state, as they were stranded with no public transport. Barring two wheelers and a few private vehicles, all the roads were deserted. Markets and shopping establishments were forced to cooperate with the shutdown or face the wrath of the organisers.

Tendulkar is the goodwill ambassador of the Games.

Kerala's SJD merges with JD-U
December 29, 2014 09:53 AM
The Socialist Janata Democratic (SJD), a constituent of Kerala's ruling UDF, on Sunday merged with the Sharad Yadav-led Janata Dal-United. At a public meeting held in Thrissur, Yadav along with former Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar welcomed SJD supremo and media baron M.P.Veerendra Kumar into their fold. "The BJP government is in the process of creating a divide in the country and if the government goes forward to erect statues of (Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram) Godse, then it's going to be a challenge," said Yadav on the occasion. The ground was cleared for the merger after Veerendra Kumar met Yadav in Delhi this September. The SJD was formed in 2009 when Kumar, along with his supporters, broke away from the Janata Dal- Secular after he was not fielded again from the Kozhikode Lok Sabha seat in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls by the CPI-M led Left Democratic Front (LDF).
