The Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK), led by R.K. Nagar legislator, T.T.V. Dhinakaran, on March17 released its first list of candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and Assembly bypolls.

In the first list, the party named nominees for 20 parliamentary constituencies and nine Assembly seats. While the AMMK has decided to field candidates in 38 Lok Sabha seats, it has allotted Central Chennai to its ally, Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI).

Polling for the 39 parliamentary and 18 Assembly constituencies in the State will be on April 18. The Assembly by-elections for 17 seats have been caused due to the disqualification of legislators, who owed allegiance to Mr Dhinakaran.

Nine disqualified legislators have been fielded as AMMK’s candidates in their original constituencies.
