Kerala Chief Minister and Chairman of ruling UDF Oommen Chandy on Saturday said seat- sharing talks among the Front constituents for the May 16 state Assembly polls are "progressing well".

"Front used to share seats after discussions and with mutual agreement. Congress, the lead partner, has never shown an autocratic stand on this issue," he said after holding a preliminary round of talks with Kerala Congress (M), the third largest partner in the Front.

Chandy also said the next round of talks with KC-M would be held on March 9.

Kerala Congress (M) leader K M Mani said though the party was not "fully satisfied" with this round of talks, it has no complaints.
