Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK has entered into an electoral pact with actor-politician Vijayakanth's DMDK, which contest four Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, Deputy Chief Minister and party Coordinator O. Panneerselvam said on Sunday.
Announcing the tie-up, he said the DMDK will also support his party in the by-elections for 21 Assembly constituencies.
He said though the Election Commission has announced by-elections only for 18 assembly constituencies along with the Lok Sabha polls, the DMDK will support the AIADMK whenever the bypolls are held for the remaining three seats.
Panneerselvam said the constituency allocation will be made to the alliance parties after mutual discussions.
DMDK Treasurer Premalatha said the alliance will continue even for the local body elections in Tamil Nadu.
