The state committee of the Marxist party met at its headquarters AKG Centre here and elected Vijayan to lead the party. The party has 11 new faces from CPI (M).

The party state committee, chaired by senior leader Elamaram Kareem, decided to entrust Shailaja with the position of party whip, the statement added.
