Tamil Nadu assembly bypoll results HIGHLIGHTS: Will continue with Amma's good work, says OPS as AIADMK holds on to power
TN CM Edappadi K Palaniswami will walk out with a smile after his date with destiny as his party manages to bag enough seats to take them past the halfway mark in the Assembly.
The final results for the 22 assembly seats in Tamil Nadu where bypolls were held are emerging and it appears that CM Edappadi K Palaniswami will hold on to power in the state.
The DMK needed to win 21 of the 22 seats to storm to power, but they are nowhere near that figure with the AIADMK set to win at least 8 seats. Stalin and his men though are busy celebrating their massive win in the Lok Sabha elections.
The bypolls were touted to be a mini assembly election as the political future of EPS and Stalin hinged on the results. With 114 MLAs including the Speaker, the AIADMK had to win just four seats while retaining a few disgruntled MLAs to reach 118 in a House of 234.
According to ECI website at 11 pm, AIADMK had won 3 seats and was leading in 6. DMK had won 6 and was leading in 7.
