New Delhi: Sitaram Yechury - who scored a crucial point as the CPM amended its position on an electoral understanding with the Congress - has been re-elected as the party's General Secretary. The election took place during the party's once-in-three-years meeting in Hyderabad.

Mr Yechury's proposal for joining forces with the Congress in the battle against the BJP was shot down by his party last year.  But the party's draft political resolution was tweaked yesterday, that left the door open for an electoral understanding with the Congress to oust the BJP.

In the wake of the tussle between Mr Yechury and his predecessor Prakash Karat over the political line, the party's political organizational report said there was a need to improve the level of cohesion among the politburo members at the Centre.
