After Jayalalithaa, Who? RK Nagar Votes On December 21, Results On 24th

By-elections to RK Nagar four other Assembly constituencies on Dec 21

By-elections to RK Nagar four other Assembly constituencies on Dec 21

Following Madras High Court's order to conduct the RK Nagar bye-elections before December 31, the Election Commission announced on Friday that it will be conducting the polling on December 21 and the final counting will take place on December 24.

The by-polls for Sikandra in UP, Sabang in West Bengal, Pakke-Kasang and Likabali in Arunachal Pradesh would also be held on December 21, said reports.

The poll in the constituency which was scheduled to be held on April 12 this year, was cancelled by the EC in the wake of allegations of voters being bribed.

The Dr Radhakrishnan Nagar assembly seat fell vacant after the death of then Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016. With the notification of the by-poll, the model code of conduct has come into effect in Chennai district where the constituency is situated.

The election for the RK Nagar constituency in Chennai, which fell vacant after the death of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa in December previous year will be held on December 21. Madhusudhanan belongs to a party faction led by Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam. These two leaders had been in opposing splinter groups of the party the last time the by-election had been announced.

The Election Commission had frozen the "two leaves" - or "rettai ilai" - symbol in March ahead of the first by-election. Both factions had named candidates. Also in the fray was Deepa Jayakumar, Jayalalithaa's niece, as an independent candidate. But, after the Election Commission gave back the symbol to the EPS-OPS faction the dates for bypoll elections were announced by the Election Commission.

In April, when the AIADMK was divided into two - one led by Panneerselvam and the other by jailed leader V.K. Sasikala and her nephew T.T.V.Dinakaran -, the former faction fielded E. Madhusudhanan and the latter Dinakaran.
