The AIADMK appointed Sasikala Natarajan, a close friend and associate of late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa for 22 years, as the party’s interim chief on Thursday.

“Just as we saw MGR in the form of Jayalalithaa, so too we see Amma in Sasikala,” said chief minister O Panneerselvam while reading out the resolution.

Natarajan, who has never contested an election, held public office, or indeed, a formal position of leadership within the party, was not present at the meeting.

The party’s 2,770-strong assembly in Vanagaram, Chennai, appointed her as the interim general secretary, the highest position in the party. She will function as general secretary - with the full authority that the post entails - until she is formally elected sometime in January.
