Chennai, March 22: The Election Commission (EC) on Wednesday will choose which group of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) is the legitimate inquirer to the party’s Election Symbol – Two Leaves – a decision that could possibly have an extensive effect on both O. Panneerselvam and Sasikala Natarajan in Tamil Nadu politics.

On Tuesday, Sasikala-drove All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) submitted an appeal before the commission staking claim to the party’s two leave symbol. Party Deputy General Secretary TTV Dinakaran has asserted that the ‘two leaves’ symbol has belongs to his group and that he would be submitted the nomination for the R K Nagar election on March 23.

Submitting of nominations for the RK Nagar by-election started on March 16. Scrutiny of nominations would occur on March 24th when the party symbol will turn a key issue. The byelection results will be pronounced on April 17.
