PATHANAMTHITTA: The Election Commission, on Wednesday, conducted byelections in Chaveriplavu ward (ward-II) of the Ranni-Angadi panchayat and Kadika ward (ward-VIII) of the Ezhamkulam panchayat in the district.
The bypoll in both the panchayat wards was necessitated following migration of the sitting members to the Gulf on job visa.
The counting will be held on Thursday, official sources said.
However, the election results are unlikely to affect the ruling coalition in either panchayat.
The United Democratic Front has a handsome majority in the Ranni-Angadi panchayat, while the Left Democratic Front enjoys a majority of 11 members in the 17-member Ezhamkulam panchayat committee.
