Chennai , July 11( BPNS)
In an expected political move, AIADMK general council which is meeting at Vanagaram in Chennai has appointed Edappadi K. Palaniswami as party interim general secretary.
The general council meeting also annulled the dual leadership posts of coordinator and co-coordinator which were held respectively by O. Panneerselvam and Edappadi K. Palaniswami.
The general council meeting has also adopted resolutions for reviving the general secretary post and electing a leader by the primary members of the party as general secretary.
AIADMK MLA, R.B. Udayakumar moved the resolution to ratify the election of party office bearers for various party posts through organizational elections.
It may be noted that after the passing away of J. Jayalalithaa the AIADMK has been functioning under a dual leadership with OPS and EPS holding the posts respectively. The party district office-bearers meet which was held in June 14, 2022, had called upon for a single leadership in the party.
