The governor of Tamil Nadu has invited E Palanisamy to form the next government in Tamil Nadu. He is likely to be sworn in as the chief minister of the state on Thursday at 5pm, following which he will have to prove his majority on the floor of the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly.
Palanisamy earlier met with Governor Vidyasagar Rao at Raj Bhavan. He told Rao that he has the required strength to form the government in the state. While inviting him, Rao also told that a date to conduct a floor test would be fixed.

On Wednesday, O Pannerselvam too had met with Rao at 8.30 pm. The governor, however, did not spell out what would be the next course of action he would take. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had advised the governor to hold a composite floor test in case there are rival claims to form the government.
