A day after tweaking party bylaws to strengthen the present leadership structure of the top two positions held by O Panneerselvam and K Palaniswami, the AIADMK on Thursday announced holding elections to the said posts next week.
Importantly, elections to the posts of Coordinator and Joint Coordinator, held by Panneerselvam and Palaniswami respectively, will be held on December 7 in lines with party laws that mandate such an exercise once in five years, an AIADMK release said.
The AIADMK, facing challenge from eased out leader V K Sasikala, had on Wednesday amended its bylaws to retain and strengthen the present leadership structure of the top two positions.
Empowering ordinary party members again, to elect the top leadership were among the changes made, apparently aimed at aiding the current AIADMK leadership in more ways than one.
The changes, effected in the Executive Committee meet held at the party headquarters here on Wednesday are expected to help the leadership in important legal matters.
The “polling day” will be December 7, and the counting of polled votes and declaration of the result will be done on December 8, it said.
