Thiruvananthapuram: Union Defence Minister and CWC member A K Antony today expressed confidence that the Congress led ruling UDF in Kerala would win more seats in the coming Lok Sabha polls than in the last election.

During a brief interaction with reporters here, Antony said Congress and UDF got 16 Lok Sabha seats in the last polls and 'I am confident that UDF will get at least one more seat than it in the coming elections".

Kerala has 20 lok sabha seats and in the last election congress won 13 seats while its partners IUML two and KC-M One.

Asked whether the seat-sharing issue with its partners would affect its performance, Antony said it was natural for coalition partners to seek more seats to contest. 'All issues would be settled through talks'.
