Chennai: Ruling DMK will on March 16 release
its list of candidates for the April 13 Tamil Nadu assembly polls.
Party president and Chief Minister M Karunanidhi would
release the candidates list at a press conference here, a DMK
release here said.
The party is to contest 120 seats, after allotting 63 seats
to key ally Congress and 30 to PMK among others.
While Karunanidhi had announced last week at the end of
hard-bargaining with Congress that his party will contest from
121 seats, he had allotted one seat to Peruthalaivar Makkal
Katchi, a Nadar community outfit, on Sunday, bringing down his
party`s tally by one seat.
While the 86-year-old leader would chair a meeting of
alliance party leaders at party headquarters Anna Arivalayam
on March 18, the party would come out with its manifesto the
next day, the release added.
