AIADMK crisis: Despite merger, numbers are not in Edappadi Palanisamy's favour


The crisis in AIADMK is back and with it has come the threat to Tamil Nadu government. In case Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy is asked to prove his majority, the government may fall short of simple majority. With 19 MLAs withdrawing their support to Palanisamy, the Chief Minister's chair is now shaky.

AIADMK crisis: Despite merger, numbers are not in Edappadi Palanisamy's favour

Here is how the numbers stack up in the current scenario for Edappadi Palanisamy's government.

  • The total strength of the AIADMK in the Tamil Nadu assembly, without considering camps: 135
  • Out of this, one is the speaker and hence won't be counted. The number then stands at 134
  • Out of the 134 members, three are independent candidates who had supported the Palanisamy government earlier. They are today undecided. This brings down the number to 131.
  • Out of the 131 legislators of the AIADMK, 19 have withdrawn the support to Edappadi Palanisamy bringing the count down to 112.
  • All in numbers
