IUML set to overhaul LDF in Malappuram bypoll
17 April 2017 Current Affairs:

Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), the second major constituent of the Congress-led Opposition United Democratic Front (UDF) appears set to overhaul the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) in all the seven Assembly segments in the Malappuram Lok Sabha constituency from where byelection results began pouring in from 8 a.m. on Monday.IUML general secretary and former Minister P.K. Kunhalikkutty had gained substantive leads in five out of the seven Assembly segments and was ahead of LDF's M.B. Faisal of the CPI(M) in the Kondotty and Vallikunnu Assembly segments which the LDF had won in the 2016 Assembly elections. The byelection was necessitated by the death of former Union Minister of State for External Affairs E. Ahamed in New Delhi on February 1. He had won the seat by a margin of 1.94 lakh votes.The outcome of the byelection was foregone as Malappuram is an IUML bastion. However, the setbacks in the two LDF-controlled Assembly segments would cause some serious embarrassment for the ruling alliance.
