MK Stalin threatens to move court if EC doesn't act against AIADMK

Chennai: After DMK lost its chance to dethrone Jayalalithaa led-AIADMK in the much-hyped and one of the most important assembly elections in south India, the DMK treasurer MK Stalin today said that they may move court if the Election Commission (EC) doesn't act on their allegation against AIADMK of using its influence to win elections.
Stalin said, "We have given enough complaints to Chief election officer regarding violations by ruling Govt and we've lost confidence in EC."
"If the election commission doesn't take proper action there is no other option for us than going to the court," Stalin added.
A number of exit polls on May 17 predicted a win for the DMK-Congress alliance in the Tamil Nadu assembly elections, but that didn’t happen.
However, during the initial hour of counting on May 19, DMK took an early lead but could not catch up with Jaya’s AIADMK who overtook them.
Meanwhile, the Election Commission had postponed elections in two constituencies and polling is yet to take place there on May 21, however, it seems this would hardly make a difference for the DMK.
