In a notable move, the Left party nominated four of its sitting MLAs, including Devaswom Minister K Radhakrishnan, to contest in key constituencies.

Thomas Isaac and Shailaja, both political heavyweights, are set to try their luck in the coming general elections.

Actor-turned MLA Mukesh and V Joy have also been chosen to contest the LS polls.

Additionally, two sitting MPs, A M Arif (Lok Sabha) and Elamaram Kareem (Rajya Sabha), have been included in the candidate list.

Party state secretary M V Govindan announced the list of candidates during a press conference held here.
