AIADMK crisis: EC to hear claims by E Palaniswami, TTV Dhinakaran factions on two leaves symbol on 5 October

Chennai: The Election Commission of India on Thursday told the factions of the AIADMK that it will hear their competing claims to the party's frozen 'two leaves' poll symbol on 5 October.

The Election Commission has informed the warring parties — E Madhusudanan, VK Sasikala, O Panneerselvam and TTV Dhinakaran — the date of the next hearing citing the 15 September order of Madras High Court's Madurai Bench asking the poll panel to dispose of the case relating to the symbol before 31 October.

The poll body has told the warring parties to submit any fresh submissions latest by 29 September.

"lf any individual affidavits of support are being filed, such affidavits should be confined to the members of the Legislative wing (Members of Parliament and Legislative Assembly) and the apex level representative bodies in the organisational wing of the Party, i.e. the General Council and central Executive committee," the Election Commission said in its notice.


"You are also directed to submit the list of General council Members and Central Executive Committee Members of the party as on 5 December, 2016," it said, adding that copies of the lists should also be served on the other group.
