Left Democratic Front

Left Democratic Front

Left Democratic Front is one of the two major alliances that dominate the political life of the Indian state Kerala. This front is led by Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M)). Since 2006 LDF controls a majority of 56 seats (out of a total of 140 seats) in the state legislative assembly. After the 2006 Assembly Election, veteran CPI(M) leader V.S. Achuthanandan is heading the LDF government in Kerala.

Members of LDF and their representation in Kerala Legislative Assembly after 2006 election are as follows:
#Communist Party of India (Marxist) (65 Members including 4 CPI(M)-supported independents)
#Communist Party of India (17)
#Janata Dal (Left) (5)
#Revolutionary Socialist Party (3)
#Kerala Congress (Joseph) (4)
#Congress (Socialist) (1)

LDF has eight subcommittees:
* Agriculture
* Cooperative
* Culture
* Education
* Elections
* Finance
* IT
* Youth & Sports

The Indian National League stands close to the LDF, but is not a member of the Front.

LDF is also the name of an alliance in Maharashtra. The core of LDF in Maharashtra is Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India and Peasants and Workers Party of India.
