Vijaykant's DMDK didn't win any seats in the recent Assembly elections.

With securing just 2.4 per cent in the Assembly elections, DMDK, founded by actor-turned politician Vijaykant is set to lose its recognition as a State party by the Election Commission of India.

An official said that the EC will give its order to that effect in due course.

Derecognition by the Commission occurs when the party concerned does not meet the conditions specified by it, such as having at least one member to the Legislative Assembly of that State for every thirty members of that Assembly or any fraction of that number.
