THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a move to ensure maximum success in the local body polls, the CPM has decided that those with winning possibility and are not against the party ideologies can be fielded as candidates. Winning possibility of candidates - irrespective of whether party workers or not - would be the primary criteria, the party decided.
The party state committee is of the view that youngsters should be given more opportunities in the polls. Also those with wide acceptance in the regional level would be fielded.
“Regional level adjustments can be made if it’s effective. Prominent people at each region, if they are not against the party’s views and ideologies can be fielded to ensure that the party makes maximum gains,” sources said.
The three-day CPM state committee meet which began in the capital on Thursday reviewed the political scenario in view of the polls scheduled in October.
Though there’s slight uncertainty over the schedule, the party has decided to go ahead with the view that polls would be held as per earlier schedule. The LDF has already announced its plans to go for agitation if the polls are not held as per earlier schedule.
The Aruvikkara poll issue is expected to come up for discussion before the state committee on Friday.
