Tamil Nadu Election Result 2022 Highlights, Tamil Nadu Election Result Today, Tamil Nadu Election Result Counting Time: The MK Stalin-led DMK and its allies has secured a thumping victory in the Tamil Nadu local body polls held on February 19. While the AIADMK has remained a distant second, the BJP has emerged as the third largest party in the polls. Of the total 1373 municipal corporation seats, the DMK alone has won 946 wards in corporations (total 1373 seats), 2,360 in municipalities (total 3842 seats) and 4,388 in town panchayats (total 7605 seats). Among the DMK allies, the Congress won 73 corporation seats, 151 municipal wards and 368 town panchayat seats. Similarly, other allies including the Left parties, the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, the Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi and Indiya Jananayaga Katchi have also won, pushing the DMK front’s tally beyond the two-thirds mark. The BJP stunned other parties by bagging Eraniel Town Panchayat as it won 12 out of the 15 seats. Indirect elections would be held soon to pick Mayors for corporations, chairpersons for municipalities and town panchayats.

On the other hand, the DMK wrested the western region convincingly, considered a bastion of the main opposition AIADMK. Buoyed by one more huge electoral win, DMK workers celebrated the victory across the state by bursting fire crackers, distributing sweets and hailing party chief M K Stalin’s leadership. Right after the last year’s Assembly win, the DMK has been focussing on the western areas and the party appointed Minister V Senthil Balaji hailing from the Karur in the region as party in-charge for Coimbatore. Many of Balaji’s supporters in social media hailed the victory lauding him for the turnaround in DMK’s prospects in this part of the state. Notably, the DMK has also won in Thondamuthur town panchayat, the home turf of former AIADMK Minister S P Velumani, considered a heavy weight in the region. After decades, the ruling party has captured the Gobichettypalayam municipality, the native of another AIADMK stalwart, KA Sengottaiyan. Senior BJP leaders including Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman congratulated the party workers for the performance.
