Retired judge E Padmanabhan has been appointed as the election commissioner for the upcoming Nadigar Sangam elections. Actor Nasser, the president of the association, announced this after an emergency executive body meeting in Chennai.

Speaking to the media after the meeting, Nasser said, “We will formally request him to take charge. We have three venues in mind and he will decide on the date and venue soon.”

Nasser also confirmed that he will be contesting for president again, with Vishal Krishna as general secretary and Karthi as treasurer. Actor Udhaya, who campaigned for Vishal during the previous elections, will be contesting against Vishal for President. 

Also, Radhika Sarathkumar will be reportedly running for president opposite Nasser, and she will be backed by actors Sarathkumar and Radha Ravi.  S Ve Shekher and T Rajendar are also said to be planning to contest from the same team, though the actors haven't confirmed the same. 

Notably, Sarathkumar and Radha Ravi are among those convicted in the Nadigar Sangam land misappropriation case. Earlier this month, the Madras High Court ordered the Kanchipuram crime branch to complete investigation on the case and submit the report in three months. Their eligibility to contest is still under contention, while this case is pending.

The present office bearers were elected to power in October 2015. While they were elected for a three-year term, it was decided that the term will be extended in a general body meeting in August 2018, and they will not have polls till the completion of the new Nadigar Sangam building. The inauguration for the building was slated for March 2019, but the construction is still incomplete.
