Sooranad (Kollam): Communist Party of India (CPI) won majority in the Sooranad Dairy Co-operative Society elections over an unusual alliance of CPM, BJP and Congress. CPI bagged five of the nine seats in the governing body.

Earlier, CPM, BJP and Congress members in the society announced that they would contest the election together as a 'Farmers Community.' The decision brought a lot of media attention to the election. However, they only managed to grab four seats.

C Rajesh Kumar, R Bindu, O Sheeja, K Divya and V Ponnappan were the CPI-backed candidates who won the election. Meanwhile, Sasidharan Nair, Jaya Prabha, Padmanabha Kurup and K Anil Kumar won the remaining four seats for the coalition parties.

CPM's decision to contest CPI had evoked controversy. As a result, the party released the two candidates who stood in the election.
