Former Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Benny Behanan is the new United Democratic Front (UDF) convener.

UDF chairman and Leader of the Opposition Ramesh Chennithala told reporters here on Thursday that the decision was made after consultations with the front allies and securing their consent. Mr. Behanan’s experience as general secretary and MLA would help him lead the front with more unity, he said.

P.P. Thankachan, who had served as UDF convener for the past 13 years, had played a commendable role in leading the front. The new convener too would give more contributions for the unity of the Congress and the front, he said.

Asked about the nomination of three working presidents for the KPCC, Mr. Chennithala said it was part of the AICC decision and it is expected to further strengthen the party. All Congress men would accept the decision of the high command, he said.
