PRANAYIPinarayi Vijayan has sworn-in as Kerala's 22nd Chief Minister on Wednesday, in the state capital . The CPI-M led Left Democratic Front (LDF) won the polls on May 19 by winning 91 seats in the 140 member Kerala Assembly. The date was confirmed by Vijayan on Saturday meeting veteran party colleague V.S.Achuthanandan along with CPI-M state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. " He (Achuthanandan) has been a chief minister from our party in the past and hence came to meet him. As things stand now, we have decided to have the swearing-in of the new government on Wednesday (May 25) at the Central Stadium, here," said Vijayan. "Discussions have begun on finalising the ministers in our party and in the coming days, the list will be ready," he added.
