Trust vote in TN Assembly tomorrow

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami will seek a vote of confidence on February 18.

Speaker P Dhanapal has convened the session of the Tamil Nadu assembly at 11 am on Saturday for the trust vote, Assembly Secretary A M P Jamaludeen said in a statement.

AIADMK leader and Sasikala loyalist Palaniswami on Thursday took oath as Tamil Nadu chief minister, replacing O Panneerselvam.

Palanisamy—the third chief minister of the southern state in less than three months— has just one day to seek a vote of confidence in the legislative assembly.

While inviting him to form the government earlier in the day, Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao had asked Palaniswami, the AIADMK Legislature Party Leader, to form his ministry at the earliest and seek a vote of confidence in the assembly within 15 days.

Speaker P Dhanapal has convened the session of the Tamil Nadu assembly at 11 am on Saturday for the trust vote, Assembly Secretary A M P Jamaludeen said in a statement. “The vote of confidence will be taken up on that day”, he said.
