Senior Congress leader Oommen Chandy was sworn in as the 21st Chief Minister of Kerala at the Raj Bhavan here on Wednesday.
Along with Chandy, six floor leaders of the UDF coalition were administered the oath of office and secrecy by Governor R S Gavai at the lawns of the Raj Bhavan.
The UDF unseated CPI(M)-led LDF by securing a thin majority of 72 seats in the 140-member House after April 13 Assembly polls.
