The DMK on Saturday named candidates for the May 19 bypolls to four Assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu and fielded former Ministers Pongalur N Palanisamy and V Senthil Balaji from Sulur and Aravakkurichi.
The party named P Saravanan and M C Shanmugaiah from Tirupparankundram and Ottappidaram (Reserved) constituencies respectively.
Balaji had quit the TTV Dhinakaran-led Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam and joined the DMK on December 14 2018.
Balaji, who was elected from Aravakkurichi in 2016, was among the 18 disqualified AIADMK MLAs for siding with Dhinakaran.
Of the 22 vacant Assembly seats, bypolls will be held to 18 constituencies on April 18 and the remaining four on May 19.
