*Result Declared

Elections to Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly’s Thanjavur and Aravakurichi seats took place on 19 November, 2016 amid tight security. Polling in these two seats had been rescinded by the Election Commission of India earlier this year in the 16 May assembly elections following reports of large scale money laundering by candidates and political parties. A byelection was also held in Thiruparankundram assembly seat on 19 November, 2016. The seat had fallen vacant following the demise of sitting MLA and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) member SM Seenivel. Seenivel had won from Tiruparankundram assembly constituency. He passed away even before taking his oath as a member of the legislative assembly (MLA). The voter turnout was 82.13% in Aravakurichi, 69.07% in Thanjavur and 70.40% in Thiruparankundram. As many as 81 candidates contested from the three assembly constituencies. Although several political parties were in the fray, the contest is chiefly between the AIADMK and DMK in Tamil Nadu.

Tamil Nadu Local Body Election 2016

Elections to the local bodies in Tamil Nadu are conducted by the Tamil Nadu State Election Commission every five years to elect representatives to its Rural and Urban local bodies. The state election commission had announced that the 2016 local body elections would be conducted in two phases on 17 and 19 October. The nominations for the Tamil Nadu civic body elections were to be collected from September 26, the last day to submit the documents was October 3 and the last date to withdraw nominations was October 6. However, a single-judge bench of the Madras High Court had declared the notification for elections null and void on grounds of violation of Tamil Nadu Panchayat Election Rules. It also directed election authorities to issue a fresh notification for the same and complete the process by December 31. The state election commission has filed an appeal against the verdict and the same has been admitted by the High Court. The election body has argued that the verdict has caused a grave miscarriage of justice and that it is not desirable to delay the elections.

Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections 2016 Summary

The 2016 Assembly Election was held in Tamil Nadu in single phase on 16 May. The result was declared on 19 May. Jayaram Jayalalitha created history by being the first incumbent chief minister since 1989 to return to power in the state. She now holds the record for being the chief minister of the state for six times. Jayalalitha’s AIADMK (All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) won 134 seats and main opposition party DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) bagged 89 seats. The Tamil Nadu legislative assembly has a sum total of 234 seats. Jayalalitha, who is popularly addressed as ‘Amma’, proved all exit polls wrong which said that she would lose to the DMK-Congress alliance. Perhaps, DMK’s inability to capitalise on anti-incumbency and Jayalalitha’s attractive welfare measures made it possible for her party to return to power.

Cabinet Ministers of Tamil Nadu

AIADMK general secretary J. Jayalalithaa was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu by Governor K. Rosaiah at Madras University’s Centenary Hall on 23 May. Her 28 Cabinet colleagues were also sworn in. According to the new list of Tamil Nadu cabinet members, 13 new faces were inducted.

Presently, the state is governed by the AIADMK and headed by the Chief Minister Jayaram Jayalalitha. The 2009 Lok Sabha was won by DMK with an alliance with INC. Tamil Nadu has 39 parliamentary constituencies, out of which seven are reserved for the Scheduled Castes. Elections for the 39 constituencies in 2014 were held on a single day.
