DMK allots 1 seat each to IUML, KMDK for LS polls

Chennai: The ruling DMK of Tamil Nadu, a key element of the opposition INDIA alliance, allocated one Lok Sabha seat to each of its partners, the IUML and the KMDK, on Saturday.

The agreement of seat sharing was signed by DMK President and CM M K Stalin and allied party leaders at the party headquarters, 'Anna Arivalayam,' here.

The main opposition AIADMK and the BJP are yet to announce their allies, PTI reported.

While the DMK’s long-time ally, the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) was allotted the Ramanathapuram segment in southern Tamil Nadu, the Dravidian party earmarked Namakkal constituency for the west-Tamil Nadu-based partner Kongunadu Makkal Desiya Katchi (KMDK). K M Kader Mohideen, national president of the IUML said his party’s incumbent MP from Ramanathapuram, Navas Kani, will be renominated to contest the LS polls.

The DMK is expected to finalise seat sharing with other allies including the Congress, VCK and Left parties soon.
