The AIADMK legislative party on Sunday chose its general secretary VK Sasikala to replace chief minister O Panneerselvam who resigned shortly before the crucial meeting began in the afternoon.

Sasikala will call on Tamil Nadu governor C Vidyasagar Rao to submit the party’s decision and stake claim to form the government. According to senior AIADMK leaders, Sasikala’s swearing in as the third woman chief minister of the state will take place on February 9.

The latest development is in line with the party’s old structure of a single seat of power.

After her election as legislative party leader, Sasikala said that she would work for the welfare of the people of Tamil Nadu and further the programmes and policies of Amma.

Addressing party MLAs, Sasikala said, “Following the demise of our honourable Amma, it was Thiru. O Paneerselvam who urged me first to take charge as the GS (general secretary) of AIADMK. It was Thiru.O. Paneerselvam who insisted first, that I become the Chief Minister of the State.”
