Nadigar Sangam elections to take place as scheduled tomorrow
An urgent session of the High Court was convened this evening and the venue was confirmed to be St Ebba's school in Mylapore, Chennai
The elections of the Nadigar Sangam for 2019-2022 is set to take place as scheduled as the High Court has given permission to the organising committee to go ahead with the elections on June 23. This order has come through after much deliberation about where the polls should be held. St Ebba's Higher Secondary School in Mylapore, Chennai, has finally been selected as the venue for polling. It is notable that this was the same venue where the Nadigar Sangam elections took place in 2015.
Earlier in the day, Nasser, the current head of Nadigar Sangam, met with Election Officer Mr Padmanabhan and then later with deputy Chief Minister O Paneerselvam to ensure the elections happened on June 23 as was first advertised. An urgent session of the High Court was convened in the evening to decide on the venue, after which St Ebba's was confirmed.
Meanwhile, Mr Padmanabhan, on the sidelines, announced that the postal voting for the elections was officially closed as of 5 pm, today.
Voting for elections open tomorrow at 7 am and will end at 5 pm. With 3141 people eligible for voting, the elections will see the Pandavar Ani and Sankaradas Ani contesting for the posts of President (Nasser vs Bhagyaraj), General Secretary (Vishal vs Isari Ganesh), Treasurer (Karthi Sivakumar vs Prashanth), and Vice President (Karunas and Poochi Murugan vs Kutty Padmini and Udhaya), as well as a 24-member executive committee.
