Interpretations 
From the above results/leads it is become crystal clear in all format of Panchayath  CPM+ has emerged clear winner , but only  for  Municipalities it lost to Congress
With respect  to Corporation results though congress increased its tally in Kannur but it near to loss Kochi where others/independents will have a major say  . But in Thrissur Congress bring Surprise to CPM and dislodged it .
BJP the richest party and with powerful leaders ruling roast could not make any heavy dent this time also  inspite of their robust glaring agitation  against women workship in Sabarimalai temple but came a poor  fourth position in many format of Panchayat Structure   and it is learnt their  deposit loose stream   also continues in  2020 .
Note : in order to save the security deposit, every candidate would have to secure one-sixth of the total number of valid votes cast
