Chennai: The Election Commission on Tuesday
convened an all-party meeting here to discuss on Tamil Nadu
Assembly elections, due in May 2011.

Ruling DMK, AIADMK, Congress, PMK, Left parties, BJP and
Nationalist Congress expressed their views at the meet.

Requesting the EC to ensure smooth conduct of polls, DMK
said it feared opposition parties might indulge in large-scale
impersonation and bogus voting.

"Therefore, we request that adequate steps be taken for
the smooth conduct of elections," Higher Education Minister
Ponmudi, who led the DMK delegation in the meet, said.

The Opposition urged the EC to hold the polls in a single
phase.
