Piravom by election: Heavy polling - about 40 (latest) percent voted by 10.30 am on March 17th, Saturday -2012.

The much anticipated Piravom by polls have started as scheduled on Saturday, 17th March 2012. People have come out in large numbers to exercise their franchise. In a surprising move about 40 percent of voters have cast their votes in support of their parties by 10.30 am itself. The 1.85 lakh voters of the legislative assembly constituency will decide who their MLA would be today...!

As a positive sign of people's interest in the by-election with large publicity and considered as a matter of prestige and of-course a must to win for the fronts, most of the voters of the constituency have voted in the morning itself.

Though both the main contestants are optimistic about their victory, only one party will be declared as winners on the day of counting of votes on March 21st. Even though many companies who conduct exit poll surveys and post poll surveys, the actual out come can be determined only after the counting of votes. Malayalees around the world are anxiously awaiting to see the result of Piravam by-polls, as it may have some direct or indirect impact on the UDF Government which came into power less than a year ago with very least margin.

Though many people consider that the out come of this election will be a verdict for the good and fair governance of the Oomman Chandy government in Kerala, however there is huge stress among the political leaders as no one can predict the mind of the people. The lesson all learnt from the recent Assembly elections held in five states.
