By-election to RK Nagar, four other Assembly seats on Dec 21

N Marudhu Ganesh has been announced by DMK as RK Nagar bypoll candidate

Four more Assembly constituencies in three States - Uttar Pradesh (Sikandra constituency), Arunachal Pradesh (Pakke-Kasang and Likbali) and West Bengal (Sabang) would also be held on the same day.

The by-election to Tamil Nadu's Radhakrishnan Nagar Constituency will be held on December 21 and counting on December 24, the Election Commission has announced. Scrutiny will take place on December 5 and the last date for withdrawal of nominations is December 7.

The seat fell vacant following the death of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on December 5 previous year.

The poll in the constituency which was scheduled to be held on 12 April this year, was cancelled by the EC in the wake of allegations of voters being bribed. These two leaders had been in opposing splinter groups of the party the last time the by-election had been announced.

It is yet unclear if the VK Sasikala faction of the AIADMK led by TTV Dhinakaran will contest the by-election.

However, if there's one development that had worsened the crisis within the party it was the Election Commission of India's decision to freeze the AIADMK's "two leaves" party symbol over which rival factions claimed propriety over.

The Congress too declared that it would support the DMK candidate.

The faction headed by the then rebel AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam had fielded senior leader E Madusudanan and the BJP named veteran Tamil film music director Gangai Amaran as its candidate.

The constituency came into prominence after Jayalalithaa chose to contest the seat in June 2015 after the Karnataka high court acquitted her in the disproportionate assets case.

Dinakaran had earlier said he would contest in the by-election whenever it is held.
