RK Nagar bypoll on December 21
Other parts of the country where assembly by-elections will be held on December 21 include Sikandra in Uttar Pradesh, Sabang in West Bengal, and Pakke-Kasang and Likabali in Arunachal Pradesh.
Within hours of the announcement made by the Election Commission that the RK Nagar Assembly constituency bypoll would be held on December 21, officials and the major players got into action for the most exciting election to be held in Tamil Nadu. The last day to file nomination is December 4 and the last day for withdrawal of nomination is December 7.
The seat fell vacant following the death of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on December 5 a year ago. The Election Commission had originally chose to hold the by-election to the constituency on April 12 but cancelled it in the wake of allegations of "cash-for-votes".
"We will win the bypoll with huge margin and prove that we are truly the successors of late Chief Minister and party leader J Jayalalithaa", former MP and spokesperson K C Palaniswamy told IANS. Ganesh was the party's candidate for the April 2017 by-election from RK Nagar which was rescinded by the EC following reports of large scale money distribution by then AIADMK (Amma) candidate TTV Dinakaran and his associates.
Sources said the party had made a decision to contest this election and the party's top brass in Delhi would be announcing the candidate within a few days.
