By Our Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI, MAY 18. The senior leader of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), Somnath Chatterjee, has been re-elected leader of the CPI (M) group in the Lok Sabha.

He was elected unanimously at the meeting of the party's central committee. Mr. Chatterjee was first elected leader of the CPI (M) Parliamentary Party in Lok Sabha in 1991.

The 75-year-old civil rights activist and trade unionist was first elected to the Lok Sabha in 1971 and except for losing to Mamata Banerjee in 1984 (elected subsequently in a by-election), he has been elected 10 times.

The veteran Communist leader was the pro-tem Speaker in the previous Lok Sabha as he was the seniormost member of the House.
