    Chennai: MK Stalin files nomination for the post of DMK president

    Stalin has been serving the party as its working president since January 2017 after Karunanidhi's health did not permit him to preside over the affairs of the party.

    Last week, the party's general secretary had announced that DMK's general council would be held on 28 August at Anna Arivalayam (party's headquarters) to elect the "party's president and treasurer". While the nominations could be filed on Sunday, the scrutiny would be held on Monday before the elections, the party had said.

    Earlier in the day, Stalin paid his respects at the memorials of DMK founder C. N. Annadurai and M. Karunanidhi before heading to the party headquarters to file his nomination.

    The executive committee of the DMK had met on 14 August to condole the demise of the party chief Karunanidhi and pledged its support for Stalin. Duraimurugan had announced that "Stalin, the working president, will soon lead us as the president of DMK."
