Chennai: As part of preparing for the Sankarankoil (SC) by-poll, DMK chief M Karunanidhi will
analyse his party`s prospects with ticket aspirants on Friday.

"Kalaignar (Karunanidhi) will meet those who had applied to contest the election on February 17 and discuss the prevailing conditions in the constituency and (DMK`s) victory
prospects," party general secretary K Anbazhagan said.

Office-bearers including Tirunelveli District secretary and others would be present for the interview, he said in a statement here.

By-poll for Sankarankoil was necessitated following the death of AIADMK Minister C Karuppasamy last year.

AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa has nominated V Muthuselvi, Chairperson of Sanakrankoil Municipality, as her party candidate. The MDMK has also announced it will contest the
by-election.

The Election Commission, however, is yet to announce the poll schedule.
