DMK is yet to announce its candidate for the by-poll and
PMK and Vaiko-led MDMK have announced that they would not
contest the election.
Meanwhile, Jayalalithaa also nominated A Venkateswaran,
party`s Puducherry unit Treasurer, for the Indira Nagar
(Puducherry) assembly by-poll scheduled on the same day.
