Thiruvananthapuram: The upcoming election to Local Self Government (LSG) organisations in Kerala might be postponed if all political parties come to a consensus. The all-party meeting on Friday is likely to take a final decision in this regard.
The UDF had demanded the postponement of LSG polls considering the coronavirus situation in the state. The government, which initially opposed this idea, is now ready to compromise. However, the LDF is keen on conducting the LSG polls before the Assembly polls.
All the major political parties have demanded postponement of the bypolls citing the fact that the newly elected MLAs will have only 4 months to perform. While the political parties have united in favour of postponing the polls, the government has decided not to reject the Opposition’s demand.
The all-party meeting on Friday, summoned to cancel the bypolls, will also decide on postponing the LSG polls. If all the political parties come to a consensus, the election may be postponed.
