DMK and allies sweep the local body elections

If yesterday’s Madurai election results was anything to go by it shouldn’t come as any surprise that DMK and its alliance partners swept the local body elections. ADMK and MDMK were routed in this election, while DMDK in spite of making significant inroads still trails the DMK and ADMK by quite a large margin. A break down of the results party-wise (courtesy chennaionline) is provided below,

Total 3,780(municipalities) 7,410(town panchayats) 91(district panchayats) 1,991(block panchayats) 242(corporations)


[Update 1] DMK alliances routes ADMK in Chennai

The DMK and alliances routed the ADMK-MDMK combine in the elections for the Chennai Corporation. The DMK yesterday recaptured the Chennai municipal corporation after a gap of five years, by winning 90 of the 154 wards. Its allies Congress, PMK, CPI and DPI won 37, 17, and two each respectively. The AIADMK, which had won 77 wards in the 2001 polls to the corporation and seven of the 14 Assembly seats from the city in the May elections, could win only four seats and the MDMK managed to win just 1 seat.
