Communist Party of India (CPI) has announced candidates for four Kerala Lok Sabha seats, weeks before the high-stakes elections in the country. The polling schedule is yet to be announced by the Election Commission of India (ECI).

Two of the four candidates announced by the CPI are Annie Raja from Wayanad, Pannian Raveendran from Thiruvananthapuram, VS Sunil Kumar from Thrissur and Arun Kumar from Mavelikara.

After CPI's announcement, party candidate from Thrissur, VS Sunil Kumar said, "I don't know why they are confident about their victory. PM Narendra Modi already visited Thrissur twice and held roadshows. It will not affect our political victory in Thrissur because the situation here is very different from other places. This type of gimmick will not affect Kerala politics, especially Thrissur. 19 MPs from Kerala are doing nothing for the people of Kerala. They are trying to spoil the political situation in Kerala..."

Kerala has a total of 20 Lok Sabha seats.
