List Announced!

Not to be left behind, the ADMK led DPF alliance released the list of constituencies for the forth coming assembly election. The ADMK will contest a total of 182 seats. It will face off directly against the DMK in 105 seats. In Chennai, the ADMK and DMK will face each other in Royapuram, Park Town and Purasawalkam assembly segments. It is pitted against the Congress in 35 seats, and PMK in 26 seats. The announcement also means that the ADMK has shut its doors on other smaller allies like the TN Indira Congress floated by former Congress chief T Ramamurthy, and PT led by Krishnaswamy. According to sources in the ADMK, some smaller parties may be accommodated provided they agree to contest from the ADMK symbol. With this it brings to conclusion the seat sharing between various parties. Expect the announcement of candidates within the next week. The ADMK also announced that its leader and TN CM J Jayalalitha would start campaigning at the end of March. The campaign is interestingly poised and this might be one of the closest elections in TN history. At this point in time, no single party seems like being able to win an outright majority.
