New Delhi, May 16: The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
ON LOK SABHA ELECTION RESULTS
The elections to the Lok Sabha have resulted in a victory for the Congress and its allies who will be in a position to form the new government.
The CPI(M) and the Left parties have suffered a major set back in these elections. This necessitates a serious examination of the reasons for the Party's poor performance.
The CPI(M) will continue its cooperation with the non-Congress, non-BJP secular parties with whom we have been working.
The CPI(M) assures all those who have reposed faith in the Party in these elections that we will continue to champion the interests of the working people, national sovereignty and secularism.
