The general council will give their votes by circulation. The Supreme Court allows expelled party coordinator O. Panneerselvam and three others to also vote, but confines the interim arrangement only to the occasion of Erode (East) Assembly constituency byelection and not beyond.

The general council decision will be conveyed to the Election Commission of India by the Presidium Chairman of the party A. Tamil Magan Hussain to the Election Commission, which will release the party symbol and acknowledge the AIADMK candidate for the Erode by-election.

With this interim arrangement, the SC has bypassed the need for the signatures of either OPS or EPS in the nomination process which would end on February 7.

The court made it clear that the interim arrangement should not in any manner prejudice the rights of both OPS or EPS camps.

The judgment on the dispute over the amendments made in the party by-laws during the July 11, 2022 continue to stand reserved.
