The newly-elected 132 MLAs of the party met at the AIADMK headquarters here and elected Jayalalithaa as their legislature party leader.

Thiruparankundram MLA S M Seenivel, who was indisposed, could not attend the meeting which was held under the leadership of party's Presidium Chairman, E Madhusudhanan.

Belying most of the exit polls, Jayalalithaa has led AIADMK to a "historic win," as this was the first time after 1984 that voters of Tamil Nadu preferred a party for a successive term.
