The DMK has finished seat-sharing deals with all its major partners, with only a few small parties left.
Though Joseph is still sticking to his demand for the Moovattupuzha seat, by which he wants to ensure a sure seat for his aide Francis George, Congress is unlikely to accept the demand.
As seat-sharing and candidate selection in the LDF enter the final phase, the CPI is all set to concede three seats.
So far, after four days of marathon talks, DMK has only been able to finalise seat-sharing agreements with three of its nine allies.
According to sources, the leaders will hold talks with DMK tomorrow morning, prior to which they will meet party leaders in Chennai.
The deal to share the remaining 101 Assembly seats will be finalised in the first week of February, said Left Front chairman Biman Bose.
According to LF sources, it will field candidates in the 33 seats it had won in the last assembly elections. The Congress will be contesting in the 44 seats it had won.
