CHENNAI: A Thamizh Magan Hussain (85) was elected as the interim presidium chairman of the AIADMK on Wednesday. He chaired the party’s executive committee meeting held at the party headquarters here.

AIADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam and joint coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami greeted him with shawls and bouquets. Hussain’s position is likely to be formalised during the next general council meeting of the party. Hussain told reporters that he was elected jointly by Panneerselvam and Palaniswami. “AIADMK has been honouring hard work and now, my services to the party have been recognised,” Hussain added. 

Hussain is one of the founding members of the AIADMK and he was the first district secretary in the Kanyakumari district and remained in the post for 14 years. Hussain was one among the 11 functionaries who had signed the form for registering the AIADMK as a political party.
