DMK Candidate List Tamil Nadu Election 2021: MK Stalin-led DMK has released the list of 173 candidates for the upcoming assembly election. The DMK hopes to return to power in the state after a ten-year stint in opposition. Nearly half of the 173 nominees are sitting MLAs and the party is locking horns with the rival AIADMK in over 100 seats. Party president M K Stalin is seeking a third term from the Kolathur constituency. He will file his nomination on March 15. His son Udhayanidhi Stalin is making his electoral debut from the Chepauk-Triplicane constituency. The constituency was represented by his grandfather, late M Karunanidhi for three straight terms since 1996.
MK Stalin has retained 79 sitting MLAs including seniors Durai Murugan, K N Nehru, K Ponmudi, MRK Panneerselvam, P Geetha Jeevan and Poongothai Aladi Aruna– all former ministers, besides legislators such as TRB Raja, Anitha Radhakrishnan, SR Raja, M Subramanian and R Sakkarapani.
DMK has allotted 61 seats to its allies, with the Congress taking the lion’s share of 25. DMK is contesting the polls in alliance with the Congress, the Left, MDMK, VCK and other smaller outfits, apportioning them a total of 61 of the 234 seats.
While a relatively lesser-known T Sampathkumar will take on the chief minister on his home turf, a popular local leader and former AIADMK MLA Thanga Tamilselvan will challenge Panneerselvam, who incidentally filed his nomination on Friday. Tamilselvan was one of the 18 AIADMK MLAs disqualified earlier for siding with AMMK leader TTV Dhinakaran before he joined the Stalin-led party.
