Thiruvananthapuram, March 7 (TIWN) The Kerala Congress announced on Friday that the list of probable candidates for the coming Assembly polls in the state is ready, and 50 per cent seats would go to the youth and new faces, said the chairman of the party's election committee, Oommen Chandy.

The 140-member Kerala Assembly will go to the polls on April 6, while the results will be declared on April 6.   Two-time Chief Minister Chandy was speaking to the media soon after chairing a meeting of the election committee.  "There will be no seats for those who had lost in the two previous elections. Fifty per cent of the seats would be reserved for the youth (male and female) and new faces. Those who lost in the recent local body elections will not be considered," Chandy said.  Congress leads the United Democratic Front (UDF) which at present has five allies. This time the party is expected to contest around 95 seats in the state.
