Chennai: AIADMK nominee and popular television
anchor A William Rabi Bernard is all set to get elected to
Rajya Sabha as his was the only nomination left after scrutiny
on Wednesday.

Election Commission sources said three nominations,
including two independents, were filed for the lone seat for
which elections are scheduled for July 22.

The last date for filing nominations ended yesterday. The
last date for withdrawal is July 15.

The bye-election was necessitated after K V Ramalingam
(AIADMK) resigned his seat to become a Minister in the Tamil
Nadu Government after his party came to power.

Bernard, a well-known journalist and AIADMK loyalist, had
worked with various television channels before he joined
Jaya TV, for which he has anchored several programmes.
