Tamil Nadu Chief Minister-elect MK Stalin will be swearing-in as the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on May 7. The development has come on Monday, exactly a day after the DMK has won the Tamil Nadu assembly polls with a spectacular majority, which has been seen as a remarkable push for Stalin's leadership.
MK Stalin led-DMK alliance is all set to form the new government after a decade with a sound majority in the assembly. Tamil Nadu had gone through the assembly polls on April 6 with five fronts on the race to win the reign. The votes were counted on Sunday amid staunch expectations across and beyond the state and the initial trend has displayed a close race between the Dravidian parties and it was in a fashion that the confirmation was not in sight.
However, the trend has later been in favour of the DMK alliance as it rose with a high lead than the ADMK regime. With a resplendent majority, the trend had in the evening hours of Sunday confirmed that the DMK alliance has triumphed the elections. As per the predictions of the exit polls, the DMK-led alliance has led in 159 seats, about 40 seats more than the majority mark of 118 while the ADMK alliance had eventually ended its race with 75 seats.
As it was confirmed that MK Stalin will become the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the DMK alliance had unveiled celebrations across the state to relish the verdict from the people to rule the state for the next five years. The Chief Minister-elect was surfaced with wishes and commendations from the national leaders and celebrities for forming the next government in Tamil Nadu.
ADMK's debacle, which is, in fact, the fiasco of the leadership of the current ADMK leaders, was made possible by the intense anti-incumbency wave and the yearning of the state to see a change. The baton has now been passed to MK Stalin, who has won his very first election as the DMK President. Following the victory, Stalin had in the evening hours of Sunday gone to the memorial of his father, former DMK President Karunanidhi, and dedicated the victory to the deceased political icon.
As it was official that the DMK has won, the reports say that Stalin could swear in as the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on May 10 at the centenary auditorium of the Madras University. However, it has come to the revelation that he will be taking oath as the Chief Minister on May 7 at Raj Bhavan, Chennai in front of various dignitaries. The decision of swearing-in has come on Monday, hours after Stalin sought blessings from his mother Dayalu Ammal in Gopalapuram, Chennai.
According to reports, Stalin has arrived at Anna Arivalayam, the DMK headquarters after receiving blessings from his mother to meet the senior leaders. It has been reported that all the elected DMK MLAs will come to Arivalayam on Tuesday and endorse MK Stalin as the Chief Minister. The endorsement of the majority of MLAs to form the government will then be forwarded to Governor Banwarilal Purohit and on May 7 - Friday, MK Stalin would be swearing-in as the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
