Deve Gowda to select candidates for upcoming Assembly elections

The JD(S) core committee on Friday authorised party supremo H D Deve Gowda to select candidates for the upcoming Assembly elections.

This is in contradiction to the party's earlier stand that the core committee will take a final call on the candidate selection.

Party state president had also announced that the JD(S) will be the first to release it's candidates' list. He had said that the list will be released by the end of the month.

But it looks unlikely that the party will finalise the list anytime soon. Apart from the bickering within the Gowda family itself, the party is also finding it difficult to iron out the differences among aspirants in many districts.

Also, the party has been unable to identify any worthy contenders in a majority of the constituencies. The core committee members also decided that the party will field candidates in all 224 constituencies.

It has entrusted party leaders including H Vishwanath and K T Srikantegowda to draft the JD(S) manifesto.
