Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala's ruling Congress-led UDF on Wednesday expressed confidence in retaining power in the state.
Ahead of hitting the campaign trail in full vigour, the United Democratic Front held a meeting here on Wednesday.
UDF convenor PP Thankachen told reporters that members at the meeting were confident that the Oommen Chandy-led UDF will win the upcoming polls and retain power.
Thankachen also said the meeting discussed and cleared the draft of the poll manifesto which will be released next week.
Kerala will elect 140 new legislators on May 16.
No government has, however, returned to power after a full five-year term in the state's history.
